Actually, to be fair, I’ve been wanting to make this ever since I got this book: One-Yard Wonders. It’s just that I always seem to sew clothes instead. But after all the work that I had to do to get that eyelet top to work, I needed something simple. Dead simple. This hot and cold pack fit the bill.
I used the other shibori panel I made last year. I’d always wanted to make myself something but that muslin was unbelievably off grain and I was just too worried that it would look awful. I’m happy to have been able to use the whole yard. No waste.
The pack itself has rice filled channels.
Once the pack is either chilled or heated, you stick it in the envelope…
And then use the wrap pieces to tie it to the lower back.
Or any other aching part. The ties are really long and wide. I can’t imagine it not fitting any body part on anyone. I don’t need a bunch of these things but I could see myself making them as gifts…
I’ve made hot/cold packs before, but I love the case with ties for it! I really need to pull out the indigo I bought a while back and dye something… yours turned out beautiful!
