I is for Ice Pack

Its actually a Rice pack . . . but since we are on the letter 'I', I will change it to an Imitation Ice Pack. I got the basic idea on THIS blog a couple of weeks ago & I loved it! I wanted to make one for Josh, being an active lil' boy he gets his fair share of bumps & bruises. -But never wants to put an ice pack on- I think if we had a pack that was more fun & appealing that Josh would be willing to use it.
 Just like last weekends DIY this is also very easy & takes minutes to make.

1 Pick out a fun fabric
2 Cut out a fun shape, I am going to make Josh's into a dinosaur!
3 Pin everything in place
4 Simply sew around, I was going to turn inside out originally, but I like the way the stitching looks outside.
5 Add some fun touches
6 Fill with Rice
7 Stick into the freezer & wait for the next boo-boo to happen . . .
Have a great weekend:)

Great fabric choices and such a happy dinosaur. I have a rice bag that I heat...I never thought of using it cold! I will have to try that :)

Very creative and SOOOO cute! I've made a rice pack before, but just with a tube sock. It worked, but wasn't nearly as cute. :)
