We call them Cozies...
Our dependence on Cozies began in 2009 when I made a bunch of microwaveable corn-filled flannel bags and gave them to my family and friends for Christmas. You can read the original post here.
Well. Two years later...the whole family and many of my friends are addicted to the warmth of Cozies. They really make winter more bearable.
We use them to take the chill off of a cold winter afternoon, to heat up our beds at night...
And to warm up our hands and toes...
I know that I have a few friends and family member who need new ones. For Valentine's Day, I thought I would try making them in the shape of hearts.
I made them in the same way as last time and I used one of those big hearts that you buy at the craft store as a pattern.
I double sewed the two flannel pieces together and filled with feed corn.
Now, it's time to spread some warmth this Valentine's Day and give them away.
Have you heard of the movement to convert the commercial nature of Valentine's Day to Generosity Day? Here's the man who started the movement with his "Generosity Experiment". And a very interesting talk he gave on the subject here. I've decided to try a 30-day generosity experiment myself from now until March 14.
In the meantime, I have some warm hearts to deliver.
Here's hoping you celebrate something or someone you love today.
See you next time!
