Heated Neck Wraps

Minky Fabric... What's not to love about it? 
Susie loves this stuff.
She is always asking me to make her something out of it.
  So this year for Christmas, I did just that.
I found these two wonderful tutorials on making
Microwave Heated Neck Wraps.

I would have loved to have done a tutorial on mine for you, but I have a habit of kinda mixing patterns and making my own thing.  You never know what I am going to end up with.

Have you ever made a project where you take a little inspiration from a few tutorials and make it your own ?

At Sew 4 Home   you can find a quick and easy tutorial on whipping up a few of these in a day.


If you have extra time and want to make a really special one, maybe for a sick friend,  Modify Tradition  has a wonderful tutorial on making a fabulous neck wrap with a quilted cover.


I decided to make my wraps with a little personal flare...
I monogrammed their initials in the corner.

I think Sista liked it...
She said it helps relax her neck after a long day of painting.

I made my Brother In Law one out of striped ticking. 
At first, I think he was not to sure about heating rice in the microwave. But after the first demo, everyone at the party wanted to try it out.

Of course, I could not let Sista relax with just a neck wrap, so I whipped her up a pair of lounge pants to match.  

Looking for some inspiration or have something to show off?

Wow, what a great sista you are! Love the lounge pants for sure, could even be worn out for a quick errand in a pinch...or would I just do that? LOL

Hey Missy~
I love these...I make mine with flax seed and a little differently. I'm going to make a few this week and will post them so you can whip up some of those, too. While you're at it, I need some new cozy jammie pants. ;)
