Upcycled Sweater Heating Pad
Now that the weather is dipping, it’s time to bust out those old sweaters. Not to wear… to cut up.
For this project I used a sweater sleeve to make a rice filled heating pad.
Start with your old sweater. This one was my son’s and it’s way too small now. I don’t know why we still had a boy’s size sweater in his closet (the things you find in your kid’s rooms).
Cut off the sleeve and if you want add an embellishment. I used the argyle pattern from the body of the sweater to add a heart. A simple running stitch with bakers twine holds it on. Stitch up the bottom and then fill with rice. Gather the top and stitch closed. Add some ribbon or cord.
