HOW TO MAKE A HEAT PACK

Ella Woodger Rosenfeldt

You will need:

  • A sewing machine or needle and thread
  • A piece of material, approximately 35 cm x 45 cm
  • Pins to hold material in place
  • 1 kg of wheat
  • 2 tbsp of lavender

Method:

  1. Fold the fabric lengthways, patterned sides together.
  2. Pin along the edge to hold the material in place.
  3. Sew along one edge and down the open side, leaving the opposite end open. You can use a sewing machine or hand stich.
  4. Turn pack right way out and fill it comfortably with wheat and lavender.
  5. Sew up the open edge and voila, your heat pack is ready.

Tip: The heat pack is not suitable for heating in the oven. Best to heat it in a microwave. Always check the temperature after heating and before using the pack, so you do not burn yourself.
