Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Sew up an easy pillow filled with buckwheat to serve as a heating pad. Buckwheat holds the heat (or cold) better than rice or other grains and is hypoallergenic, since buckwheat is not actually a cereal or grass. Add a few drops of your favorite fragrance oil, or just enjoy the smell of buckwheat. You can also use this pillow as a wrist pillow when working with your computer mouse...

Could it be purchased at Health Food stores?

Maybe it was flax seed?

I use corn but my aide wanted me to use something inside her heating bag that someone had given her. I shined a light through the muslin bag and it looked like some sort of seed. she picked up bird seed, I made a small test swatch, it got so hot after 20 seconds we couldn't touch it. Any suggestions, it was not rice for sure, it looked like perhaps grass seed? Any suggestions?

That was my question...where to buy. A farmers market maybe? Is it expensive? I have a rice warmer which I love but I'd rather this if it holds heat better!

That's a great idea! Where do you suppose I can find buckwheat? Can it be washed or will it swell?
