These are two four pound bags of cherry pits. As many of you know, I have arthritis in my spine. When it really hurts I use a heating pad to help relax the muscles in my back. Except it's not a heating pad, it's a fabric bag filled with cherry pits. (I kid you not.) It works like a charm. But the one I had was a little big and I wanted a smaller one, so I did a search and found The Cherry Pit Store.
I folded it in half with the right sides together, sewed up the sides.
This blue one will live in the freezer. I'll make a red pad about the same size to use when I want a hot pad.To use a hot pad, I'll just put it in the microwave for two minutes.
