Family, Health & Hearing: Homemade Heating Pads

Microwavable heating pads with organic fillers are a wonderful way to soothe sore muscles or just warm up on a cold day. With the Fall season underway and Winter fast approaching, we decided to offer the opportunity to make some of these at our first Open Craft Night.

With a little research, we turned to SEW4HOME as our resource one how to make these quick useful heating pads.


You can choose from many materials, most found around your home already, to make these quick heating pads.

You will need 100% cotton cloth to make the sack. You can use your remnant fabric from your sewing room, old cloth napkins or any other material you choose. You may also choose to make seasonal decorative covers from plush materials such as fleece.

Organic fillers such as rice, whole dried corn and Flax seed are suggested in the article. We chose to supply long grain rice (most of us have kicking around our kitchen) and whole dried corn (many of us have kicking around our barns). Which filler is better? Read the SEW4HOME article to learn about their findings.
