Therapy Packs

I've seen posts about therapy packs all over the blogging world, and knew that this would be a quick and easy gift to make for lots of people this year - family members, friends, teachers.  And best of all, it would also be useful!

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.
