Hey y'all. Rachel here from PS I Quilt. Today I'm gonna show y'all how to make a quilted heating pad. These things are a godsend. You definitely need one (or three) of these in your life. Trust me. My fabrics of choice are these lovelies ...
What y'all will need:
- 8 print fat quarters
- 1 solid fat quarter
- Fusible Fleece
- 1 pound bag of rice
- Essential oil (optional)
From print fat quarter, cut: 1 strip, 6 1/2" x 10 1/2" 1 strip, 7 1/2" x 10 1/2"
From solid fat quarter cut:
2 strips, 8" x 10"
Lay out 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" strips in a manner that is pleasing to you.
Lay quilted top down with the right side facing up. Layer with one hemmed rectangle, right sides together.
Note: The hems of the rectangles are supposed to overlap each other. Using a 1/4" seam allowance, stitch around all four sides of heating pad.
Note: Depending on how pliable you'd like your heating pad, you can add up to 1 more pound of rice.
Machine stitch opening. (No one will see this but you.)
