Day 61: Warm & Cozy

Day 62: Applique Those Holes Away!
Day 60: Carowinds Top

Yesterday’s Carowinds trip was awesome, fun, and exciting! :)

But today, I felt like I had been beaten up in an alleyway or something.  Being tossed around on roller coasters all day really caught up with me.  :(

I reached for my trusty heating pad…

Boring Heating Pad in Clinical Blue

…and crinkled my nose as how boring and clinical-looking it was.

I decided to make a new, much more aesthetically pleasing cover for it.

I grabbed an old (but very pretty) pillowcase out of my scrap pile.

Pretty Pillowcase!

Then, I trimmed it to be slightly bigger than my heating pad.

Snip and Snip!

Since this was already a pillowcase, I was able to keep two of the existing seams. :)

I stitched it all down, and hemmed the raw edge at the opening.


Then, I put my heating pad in its stylin’ new case.  :)

Insert pad a iinto case b.

And now my heating pad is much prettier and much more welcoming!

Ahhhh....doesn't that look cozy?

I lay back and let the magical heat take care of my achy neck and back.  :)  Ahhhhhh!  :)

  1. I’ve been meaning to do exactly the same thing with my heating pad! I too love roller coasters but they don’t love me so much as I get older, hope the pain was worth it!

  2. I don’t know if you’d want this to be made from an old one, but…:
    Take a tube sock.
    Fill with long grain rice (the long cooking kind but not cooked!)
    Tie a knot at the top-ish opening.
    Hope you feel better fast and re-fashion more!
