Made It! Lavender and Rice Heating Pad

Rice and Lavender Heating Pad 

I found this heating pad on Pinterest and loved the idea of a large pad that went around the shoulders and down the back. So often I only see neck warmers. I decided to make some for my mom and sister-in-law for Mother's Day. These are really easy to make and make great gifts. In an effort to reduce/recycle I used some fabric I already owned, bought lavender from Amazon and rice from Sprouts in the bulk area. I didn't know this until I started researching it but enriched rice is actually rice they stripped the nutrient out of and then enriched it with nutrient. That is the short answer to what it is, the important part is the process makes the rice shelf life much longer, making it perfect for these warmers.

Rice from Sprouts, cheap! Which is good because you need a lot, about 9-10 cups!
