I am in great need of a new mattress, but that major purchase is a little bit low on our priority list right now. That means that sometimes I wake up with a pretty kinked neck and sore low back. I’ve had a microwave heat bag for a few years now that’ I’ve been really happy with. But the time has come for a change. The cover on it was really dirty and there were a few improvements that I wanted to make.
I already had an idea of what I wanted to do, but I decided to check out Pinterest before I started and I’m glad I did. I found this great tutorial -
that had two ideas I hadn’t thought of my own.
First – make a cover and an insert; like a pillow and pillow case. That way when the cover gets gross and dirty you don’t have to make a whole new gab, you can just take the cover off and wash it.
Second – to section off the insert so the rice/wheat/pasta stays evenly distributed. No more having one big clump of stuff at one end and nothing at the other.
I followed the tutorial pretty spot on. The only difference is that I used 2 hand towels from the dollar store for my fabric – a normal cotton one for the insert and a soft terry cloth one for the cover. It was so simple!
