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 http://justanotherhangup.blogspot.com.au/2011/03/rice-filled-cooling-pad-for-children.html 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)
