The following project was inspired by the need for a quick, easy, and huggable rice pack. Although the felt features of the HotSock are optional, they are delightful for kids. Thanks for viewing. Please vote for my Instructable!
Step 1: Materials
Thread and Needle/Sewing Machine
Spare Sock without Holes
Felt for Facial Features (optional)
Taci Glue (optional)
White Rice (8oz-12oz)
Lots of Imagination
Step 2: Preparing the Sock
Trim the sock, as shown in the main picture above, until it has a uniform rectangular shape. Sew one of the ends of your HotSock closed. At this point your HotSock should be about 7" long.
Step 3: Filling the HotSock
Insert the funnel into the pocket you just sewed up, and fill the pocket 4/5ths full with white rice. Carefully, without spilling the rice, sew up the other end of the HotSock and trim appropriately.
Step 4: HotSock Personality (Optional)
Arrange felt features to your liking and then either glue or sew them on by hand. Heat your Personalized HotSock for a minute in the microwave. Thank you for reading my Instructable. Enjoy!
