Froggie Heat Pack
Corduroy, velvet or
a heat resistant fabric
Black felt for eyes
Wheat to fill frog
1/2 cup of Dried Lavender
This is an adapted pattern to turn our Bean Bag Frog into a heat pack for kids.
Start by printing off the pattern below and enlarging it to the size you would like your frog to be.
cutting 1 piece out for the top and 1 piece out for the bottom of the frog. The pattern is designed to work with a fold down the middle.
With the right sides together sew around your frog either on a sewing machine or over locker, Hand sewing would not be very durable for this pattern as a heat pack. Leave a small section open for turning the right way and filling.
Stitch on the felt eyes, you could use buttons, but it may be a little rough against the skin when the heat pack is in use.
Turn the frog the right side out using a pen or pencil to push out the arms and legs.
Using a funnel fill the frog with 1/2 a cup of dried lavender flowers and wheat then sew up the opening with strong thread.
To use, place it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
Refresh the lavender with oil drops as it begins to wear out
