The trouble with ice packs is that it’s hard to get them to stay right where you want them. You try to tie it on with the tea-towel you’ve wrapped it in, but it doesn’t really work.
But yesterday, when I got out the ice-pack, I happened to notice this: “Do not apply directly to skin. Wrap in towel or use our special purpose non-woven pouch”
A cover for the ice-pack! Made to fit! With tails to tie it in place! Brilliant! Why did I not think of this before?!
So here it is…
a tea towel
the ice-pack, for giving me the idea, and my housemate Dave, for sacrificing the tea towel (snip “wait, what are you doing?!” “making an ice-pack cover…” “but that’s my tea towel” “oh…”)
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
