DIY Heating Pad

I love my new heating pad! It has quite possibly become my newest best friend :) I plop this little baby in the microwave for two minutes, grab my laptop and a drink and I'm content for a bit!
I made some of these for Christmas gifts, I hope the recipients are enjoying theirs too!



I made covers that can be removed and washed but you don't have to. I decided to do this since I was giving them for gifts and it would really finish it out nicely and make the gift last longer


This is the actual heating pad (although you don't have to take the cover off for heating)

I used feed corn from our local farm supply store. After a lot of research, I learned that feed corn held the heat longer and when heated, smelled much nicer than steamed rice :)
I added essential oil to mine (about 10-12 drops). For the men, I used cinnamon and clove and lavender for the ladies.
Each heating pad held about 6 cups of feed corn. The fuller it is, the longer it will stay warm. I heat mine for about two minutes but as you know microwaves vary and this should be tested..but be sure NOT to over-heat.

If you are interested in making one for yourself..here are the dimensions I used..
Heating Pad
Cut two rectangles 14x7
Sew all sides but one, leave an opening to pour your contents.
(if you use essential oil, it is recommended you let it dry for a couple of days, I let mine sit overnight)
Heating Pad Cover
Cut one piece 10x7
Cut one piece 8x7
Cut one piece 14x7
The 10x7 and 8x7 will become the back. You can see in my first picture that I hemmed and overlapped those two pieces to slip the heating pad inside.
The 14x7 piece will become the front of the slip cover.

I should have taken photos along the way to show you this step..if you need further instructions, please feel free to email me :)

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the
costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net.

Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your design.

I tend not to create a comment, but after looking at a lot of remarks on this page
"DIY Heating Pad". I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of the comments appear like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you post a list of all of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers
and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
