Friday Night with Friends

Cheryll over at Gone Stitchin' hosted 'Friday Night with Friends' last night so I thought I would join in. 

I made this 'Chick-sicle' which is a rice filled cooling pad for children.  I thought this was a great idea.  You keep these in the freezer and the frozen rice inside the chick-sicle can be used in place of a ice  pack for children.  I'm sure they would much rather use this to help soothe a bump or bruise as it's cute and fun and alot more appealing to a child than a boring old ice pack.  I'll let you know how successful it is if and when I need to get it out of the freezer!  I found this tutorial and pattern over at  You can go to her Etsy store to purchase the pattern - it's only $5.00 and I think well worth it.  (Note : this used to be free tutorial - but it has now changed to be a downloadable pattern)
Happy sewing!
