The Love Bag was named by my Son.
As a mother there are many times I feel helpless!
Especially when one of my babies is sick! And yes, they will always be my babies. This bag was created with love for my son.
My son as reciently sick with a sever stomach bug for. Doctors visit confirmed it was a bug but still, I was really worried.
All I could do was hold him, pray and rub his tummy while he struggled. I felt helpless. I felt like I needed to do something more!
I was feeling overwhelmed when a call from my mom encouraged me and inspiring me to think of simple comforts like warmth and tea for my son.
So I decided I could make a rice warmer bag. I wanted something that would warm his tummy and not his ribs. I decided to shape it so it would fit around the neck and pelvis for the most common aches and pains in my family.
Out of Love this bag was created:
pattern below- read to end!
They became so popular I make them by order only.
100% Cotton $10.00 + shipping
100% Organic Cotton & rice $15.00 + shipping
You can request a color or pattern. I use only pure cotton- it’s soft, it heats evenly and holds the heat longer!
When I looked at my finished craft. Placed it on my sons achy body and watched him finally rest and sleep. I realized, “just being here is what matters!”
If I was not here I could not have made this. I could not have comforted my crying boy. These are the moments that matter. I don’t know if he’ll remember? But I’ll know that when my baby was sick I was able to be there for him. And to me that matters!
I just grabbed the material and made up the pattern from some different ones I remember seeing in the past.
It was easy. If I can do it so can you!
- Cotton Fabric
- Sewing machine
- Ruler something to measure with
I measured with the desire to fit the shoulders of an adult!
I used a lid to create the half circle. Then I made another half circle an inch smaller so I could hem it.
Sew the boarder, make each compartment (but do not sew off), then fill each compartment and finished it off!
With a new bag start with 1 minute in the microwave. Check bag, and if more heat is desired flip bag and add 30 seconds to 1 more minute, until desired temperature is reached. Never place directly on skin. Have cloths between bag and skin. Better to have it too cool than too hot!
