Sewn Remedy for Back Spasms

I get really bad back spasms sometimes, and I needed something to ease the pain, whether I need hot or cold on it.  So out comes some Amy Butler Fabric, from her Love collection, and a book One Yard Wonders and with a few quick stitches here and there!  A hot/cold pack is born, one that can be tied around my waist so that I can wear it when I am standing or sitting!

I am going to make a matching cold pack to go into it as well, but for now I just made the one.  You should have seen all my staff giving me weird looks as I used about a cup of our rice to fill it up.  If we actually ate at home I would have rice, but since we mostly eat at our restaurant, well you know…lol

Here is the hot pack inside the wrap

Here it is wrapped around my waist

I think I will really enjoy this project!  It was quick to make, only a few hours, and its very functional, I think I can even wear it under my Chef Jacket!!
