How To Make Heating Bags Out Of Old Jeans
- Cut old jeans to the length you’d like your heating bag to be.
2. Turn the jean leg inside out and stitch the unfinished end closed.
3. Turn right side out and use a pair of scissors to nudge the corners out. A crochet hook works really well too.
4. Fill the bag about half full with flax seeds using a measuring cup and funnel.
5. Stitch the open end closed. It is already hemmed so no need for further finishing!
You now have a Flax Seed Heating Bag!
Just pop it in the microwave, to your desired temperature, and use it on that sore spot.
In the winter, it is oh so heavenly to place a flax seed heating bag at the foot of your bed!
On the second jean leg leftover, I decided to add a little lavender essential oil before the final seam.
I thought the ‘cuff’ look would be fun and opted to make the final seam about three inches below the finished ends and rolled back. I like the way it turned out!
