How To Make A Flax Seed Heating Bag Out Of Old Jeans

You make a pair of cutoffs out of old jeans but what can you do with the bottom portion of the jeans? You can make a flax seed heating bag! Two of the seams are already done so it makes it super easy!

How To Make Heating Bags Out Of Old Jeans

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!
