Heating Pad Cover Tutorial

So when it's the first week of school and you are excited to do nothing but sew and that plan is interrupted by your spouse and his thrown out back that has parked itself in the best bed in the house (which happens to be in your sewing room) for a few days R&R just what do you sew?  Honestly, not much... but a couple of new covers for the heating pad.  

I threw away the 15+ year old nasty polyester cover and made a new cotton and also a new flannel cover for our old heating pad finishing them up neatly with french seams.  I made notes of my dimensions and took photos along the way and wrote a short tutorial to share.

I used this tutorial to make a matching cord wrap.  This cover is such an improvement,  in hind site I don't know why I never thought of it sooner?

I am linking up with Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday.

I don't know why I never did either. Yours looks great. Hope DH mends soon and you get back to sewing. said...

Wonderful idea. I have an old ratty heating pad, but haven't used if for years. The MIL makes corn bags which is what I use the majority of the time anymore. The heat is a damp heat which works so well.
