this one's just for me

do your feet ever stay cold no matter how long you've been under your covers? is it just me?
well yesterday i decided i was not going to have cold feet anymore! and decided to make me a rice heating bag...you know the ones you stick in the microwave.
i wanted it to look stylish and cute...but i also wanted to change the cover if my fancy so required it...
i also use it on my tense neck and hello! loove it and i feel all relaxed when it's finally all cooled off!
now before you all start barking at me that you want a tutorial, it's coming, and it's so easy.
maybe by the end of the week. (so far i've managed to keep from getting the flu, probably has to do a little with the spraying down the children with lysol every time they come near me...we'll see if my luck stays up!)

You are seriously so adorable. I LOVE that rice heating bag. And yes, my feet are always freezing! I wear really warm socks, use an electric blanket, and then put a goose down throw over my side of the bed. And I live in CA!! It does the trick though. :)

Your little piggies are so cute! Especially in red.

What? People are barking at you - make them stop! Love using rice bags, but my kids use them as bean bags. Maybe if I make it long like yours that will stop them! Cute cute

I've made a bunch of these out of dry field corn. I use them when I have a sinus headache across my face. It is seriously the only thing that seems to get rid of them including medication. I make mine with removable covers as well, but mainly for the washing aspect. Love your nice bright pink cover though.

I use the feed corn too. I'm sure you can get some of that in your town. I also make the removable covers. They work great in the freezer as well for bumps and bruises. And when you heat them they have a wonderful aroma, if you like the way corn smells. :)

What a fabulous idea. Never thought to use the rice bag for my "popscicle feet". My husband is forever complain about my using his legs to warm them. Awesome idea Vanessa

Suzy said...

I have a rice bag (not nearly as cute as yours though), but have never thought of using it on my toes. I think my DH is going to love it!

We used to make these with tube socks. It goes without saying that these are MUCH cuter. What were we thinking? Mimi

Carolyn said...

I love it. Mine isn't so cute but it has a nice minty smell. :)

I have this on my to-do list. I just need a little one-on-one time with my sewing machine first.

I love those things and I don't have one anymore. Yours is so cute and kudos for such cute toesies in the middle of Winter ;)

Nicole said...

That's awesome! I love the changeable cover, great idea!

Kim said...

I have seen these rolls a couple of different places. Just wondering how much rice you used? And the sizing? I'm excited to see your tutorial. If my feet aren't warm, I can't sleep at night. Plus, my husband is getting tired of me wearing socks to bed!

Ashlee said...

Your pedicure looks really pretty!

Michelle said...
