Rice Bags

I have seen these in various places on the internet (blogs).  My grandmother and I used to make these for family and friends.

Rice Bags... put them in the microwave for a minute and then place them on arthritic joints or pulled muscles.

This is the heatable part... the bag with the rice. 
I used cotton sheet material for the bags.  Kiddo filled them with several cups of white rice.

I am a huge fan of flannel so I cut out strips of it for the covers.

Here is the cover all sewn up and the rice bag all cozy inside

I always sew an inner flap for the bags... I think it helps keep them inside the covers better.  

If the cover gets dirty, just toss in with a load of laundry and when it is dry just put it back on.  

I now need to make 3 more covers and they will be ready for gift giving.  (I am keeping one for myself... should feel just lovely on my shoulder or leg).
