Recycled Pajama Craft!

I love cute Christmas jammies! my twins get several pairs of cute flannel PJ sets each winter but all too soon they are outgrown. I had thought of making a quilt with them {but I don’t quilt} then I thought of recycling them into something really useful. Hot/Cold packs! They make great gifts too!

I keep one in the freezer and one on top of the microwave. They are the best heating pad ever! I nuke my heating pack in the microwave for 2 minutes and it is the best for sore back. I also keep one in the freezer ready to go for applying to the bumps and scrapes of everyday life with young daredevils ;) Here is how to turn an outgrown pair of kids’ pajamas into hot/cold packs. You get 2 heat packs and 2 covers from 1 pair of PJ bottoms!

It is quick, easy and useful! And moms, the next time you child has an earache and you give her one of these hot packs (heated for 1 minute) you will thank me. Make sure you slip the hot packs inside the washable cover and they will last for years. BTW, if you buy rice/corn packs online or at a craft fair you can expect to pay $10-$30. How do you like me now? ;) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
