While you are thinking...

I know you are working out the clues I gave you on the last blog....

Meanwhile, I made a Hot/Cold pad for my Daughter.  It's a muslin bag of rice inside a Felix Felicis decorated bag.  Here's the "police" photos: (you know, one this way, and one that way)

This is the first bag of rice I made.  Then after sleeping on it - not on the rice bag, but on the aftermath of making it - I realized that the glue that I used to put on the heart might leave some nasty fumes and scum in my daughter's microwave.  Can't have that!  So I made a second bag, without the glue, and unfortunately without the heart.  Sorry Honey, but you can see we were thinking about you. Sew the real one is going out without glue!


Once the rice bag is inside the blue bag there is a flap that comes over (from the left in this pic) and attaches to close the outside bag with Velcro.  (Already done!)


(You can see the flap on either side!  It was my own design, and I didn't take into account that the front would bulge out from the rice bag... well, it was my first one.) This is the good luck side - place the liquid luck on your boo-boo.  It can be used cold from the freezer (freeze for 2 hours before using) or hot (from the microwave on high for 1 or 2 minutes) depending on what kind of boo-boo you have. Consult with your physician.


You remember the "correctly colored" FF... This is where it went.

Remember to leave your guess - I gave you lots of "cheats" - on the previous post.  You might win a Harry Potter paper pieced block.

I'm linking this up to Sew Darn Crafty Party, sorry I just can't get the directions for copying her button.  I'll have to try again, some other time.


Have a wonderful Sunday.... Remember to pray for my Daughter!! and now add all those homeless people created by the tornadoes.  They, too, are going to need all the help they can get.

Hugs!!!!
Terri

  3. Did not realise you could make rice bags like that. I have only ever had wheat bags and they are quite expensive. wonder if rice lasts long like wheat in microwave, do you know?
