I was lucky enough to find some terry cloth remnants at my local fabric store to make the packs with. To make them look pretty, I used some of my cotton fabric scraps to add a strip of fabric. I essentially made a sack, left one end open, inserted the rice, stitched it up, and was done. For the larger therapy packs, I used about 3 cups of rice and for the smaller eye packs I used about 1 1/2 cups.
I found some great ideas and a cute printable tag over at Sew Mama Sew. I love that these can be used in the freezer or in the microwave, and that they are totally reusable. I made therapy packs, therapy packs with a matching eye pack, a therapy pack/eye pack with a matching towel and smaller boo-boo bag versions for my kids.
