This week I suddenly needed last minute gifts for some ladies that I've been working with.
I looked around my studio and found the beautiful Panda Forest fabrics that Blend sent me (see the un-bundling video here).
Panda Forest inspired me to make spa gifts - I sewed up rice heat wraps.
These microwavable heating pads are perfect for tired neck and shoulder muscles, sore backs, or aching feet. I love them!
I suggest microwaving them on high for 2 minutes, but you can see what temperature you like best.
This time I added drops of essential oil (a stress relief blend) to the rice before sewing it into the compartments.
They smell so wonderful... sewing them up was therapy for me and I'm going to have a hard time giving them away!
So what has your sewing machine been busy at this week? We want you to show off what you've been making. Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

Let's face it, sometimes moms forget to accessorize. Well, this infinity scarf made with just a yard of soft cotton voile is an easy accessory that you can wear anywhere. And it has fine french seams and a neat 1/4'' hem. Lovely!
