|Fleece Neck Roll - Corn Filled|
This is a neck roll that can be heated in the microwave. This particular one is made from one of the more popular fleece fabrics I have this year. It's filled with about 3 lbs. of corn. I let Amy use one last night and she enjoyed it so much that she ended up taking it to bed with her! The weight of the corn, and the heat at the same time is very soothing and great for relieving neck tension and shoulder pain.
This neck roll can also be use as an ice pack as well. Just put it in a gallon ziploc bag for a couple of hours to get it nice and cold.
Try using these around your knees, ankles, wrists, and elbows too. : )

And since it is winter I made a few chocolate brown hair clips with snowflakes in the center. When I have a chance I will make a few "fancier" snowflake clips and post those. Family night took first priority, as it should : )

Now that winter is here in full force, it's time to keep the little ones bundled and warm. My little people hate being cold! When they come in from playing outside they usually ask me for a heat pack for their little hands, noses and ears. I decided I should make a heat pack that was more their size. So, I found this adorable fabric to make childrens size heat packs. The panels have 5 different animal figures on them: a lion, monkey, zebra, an elephant and alligator. Each heat pack is 5x5 inches, and have a different animal on each side. They only take 45 seconds to 1 minute before they are heated and ready to go. This adds more fun to winter!
