I love this idea, you did a great job, for future presents you could make new covers for the heat pad, I'm Sure that would be appreciated

I love this idea- even if you didn't have sore neck and shoulders, it would be nice and cozy on a cold day. 

To make it easier, what if you sketched out where the squares would be and left little openings on all the sides when you sewed the outline of the warmer?  Then turn it right side out, sew the squares, fill with a tiny funnel and rice and then handstitched the openings closed?  I wonder if you could add some lavender to the rice, too?  Or flax seed and lavender, I don't know if you can zap flax seed...

Regardless, what a wonderful idea and gift and so thoughtful.  Pretty, too, thanks for sharing it, lelyonna.  I bet my mum would love one!

This is a great idea!  I have thought of making the little bags in the past, but this is way better.  I am a hairdresser, so my shoulders are always in pain.  And it would be a great girft for other hairdressers!

Teag- that's a great idea! I'll keep that in mind Cheesy

Halfbrit- I tried making the compartments first and then fill them with rice, but it was just way more bothersome to try to fill them up afterwards then it was actually sewing them when the rice was still in the bag, so in the end I gave up trying.... *sigh* Lavender inside sounds bloody amazing! I should totally see how dried lavender handles the microwave and if it works I'll def put som in the next one if I ever make a new one. Brilliant idea! Me loooooves lavender =D

Scampilove- Your poor shoulders.... you really should get them some help somehow. If you don't wanna sew you could always use the old trick of taking a nylon-sock and fill it with rice and pop it in the microwave. Heat is just such a help for soar shoulders and neck. I've started heating two smaller nylon-bags everynight before going to bed, and then I place them where it hurts so that I'm either on top of them, or they're on top of me. Usually I feel much better when I wake up the next morning =) (not to mention how much nicer it is going to bed with something warm there =))

Thank you all! I was very surprised to see that this thread had poped back to life again ^^
