Cozying up with a warm up bag and a good book is one of my favorite winter activities.
Last week, the winter sniffles made the rounds at our house. (I could say we were 'under the weather' but I object to the phrase because one does not say 'over the weather' for the inverse....I wonder about the etymology of some words and phrases. 🙂 )
Everyone wanted to claim the one very ugly and over-used warm up bag we possessed. Dr. Mom (me) dove into my little stash of cotton flannel and made 4 comforting warm up bags in about an hour. I had everything I needed to fill them in my pantry. (You probably have the main thing used to fill a bag in your cupboard right now.)
Then I put each bag in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes and ooooooh, aaaawwwweee, foot warming comfort. See the tutorial to learn just how easy it is to make your own warm-up bag. Enjoy.
