This is my first time making a rice heat pad! I wanted to make it 7″ × 16″ but I measured wrongly and cut 8″ × 16″, forgetting to add 1" for seam allowance for the length so the pad turned out to be 7″ × 15″ which is not that different from the initial plan, just slightly more difficult when you try to divide the 4 sections equally.
I also added straps as handles to make it easier to carry everywhere. I might make a casing for it too to prevent the cotton from tearing. The polka dot fabrics are 100% cotton from Japan. So lovely and easy to sew. I got 5m of the fabrics at the very good price of $2/m because I bought a bunch of other fabrics at the same store. Bargaining is a must! The two iron-ons are from a pack of four I bought from Daiso years ago. I think they up the cute factor of the heat pad and add some colors.
