"Love Birds" or Rice-Filled Heating Pads for Children

Update: Because some unscrupulous people have hijacked my pattern for "Love Birds" I have taken the free pattern off the web and am now selling it in my Etsy store. So sorry!

The other day a flock of "Love Birds" descended upon our home. These are not typical Love Birds, but I think it is an apt description none-the-less. After all, they are birds and we are giving them to our grandchildren with a whole lotta love


For awhile now I've been trying to think of a little present I could make for our grandchildren for Valentine's Day. I wanted to make something that would remind them of my husband and I, so I naturally gravitated to something that would hold them, hug them, and keep them warm -- just like us.


Last month I made a few Rice-Filled Heating Pads for some special adults in my life. I thought about those and then decided to make a "child's version" for our grandchildren for Valentine's Day. As a result, this here flock was created... 


I started, like I usually do, with paper and pencil...


That crude drawing took on a more polished look, and from that sketch a pattern was developed. I've been told that children who use rice-filled heating pads love them. The warmth of a heating pad can soothe a child's achy muscles or ease the pain of a stomach ache. It can keep a child warm on a cold night, and it can even be used to gently warm up a baby's crib before he goes to bed. (Remove the heating pad before the baby is placed in the crib, and always check the mattress temperature.) I'm certain a rice filled heating pad is not nearly as good as being held by a loving grandparent, but hopefully having their very own "Love Birds" will remind them that they are loved! 

 

Did you notice that the tummy of these Love Birds are in the shape of a heart? I thought that was an appropriate touch for Valentine's Day!


The back of the birdie is made of flannel -- soft, cuddly, and warm. The front is made from cotton fabrics. (Make sure you use cotton fabrics when you make your Love Bird because synthetic fabrics -- like Minky -- can melt in the microwave!) Just pop the birdie in the microwave for 60-90 seconds and when it emerges it is warm and toasty!

These Love Birds will soon fly off and wend their way toward our grandchildren spread throughout the U.S. It makes me feel good to know that they will hold these on Valentine's day and know that they are loved.


I've decided to offer this pattern 
and some brief instructions on how to make this 
"Love Bird Heating Pad" 
available to all! 

Click here to be transported to my Etsy store to receive this PDF pattern for "Love Birds" -- a rice-filled heating pad for children.


If your little one doesn't use his "Love Bird" as a heating pad,
it could definitely double as a bookend! ;o)

Those are beyond awesome! What a sweet gift and I love that it is a special touch from you.

I am going to download it for my 3 grandchildren. Thank you so very much!

Julie said...

When I first saw these my immediate thought was that my 12 year old (who is currently obsessed with owls) would LOVE one. She just woke up and saw these on the computer screen and said, "Those are SO cute. Mom, can you make me one?"

I would love the pattern, but I KNOW mine would never be as cute as yours. Would you ever sell them in your etsy shop?

Nicole G said...

These are adorable! Good work! Thank you! - Nicole from www.facebook.com/knotsewsweet

Traci said...

I love these! You are such an inspration! I'm now trying to think of some things to create my own patterns! Thank you!

Kathleen said...

These are so adorable!!! I have a rice filled heating pad that I use often in the winter to warm my feet in bed! it's definitely not as cute as yours! I am trying to download the pattern but having trouble... :(

CountryBelle said...

Thank You!
My daughter just yesterday brought down her old dingy one that I made (that she uses every night) 8 years ago and asked me to fix all the little holes before she loses the rice. These owls would be way cuter!!

Julie said...

Thank you so much. what a wonderful gift to share with us. I am going to make these for my 2 kids for Valentine's Day.
Julie

Julie and Jill said...

It is adorable! I would love to make one for our three kids. However, I can't get it to download, either.

Diane said...

These ae soooo cute. How clever of you! I can't wait to make one for my grandson. Thank you for being so generous!! Happy Valentine's Day!

Candace@craftysisters-nc said...

You are so talented and probably the sweetest grandma! I "love" your love birds and I am sure your grandkids will too! :)

Malmbergs said...

Such a loving idea! Whoooo would have thought of that!? Somebody clever like you, of course.
Thank you for your generosity in offering your patterns to us.

Staci said...

You are absolutely what I needed today! My dear friend and beloved next door neighbor is moving away, and I'm having a difficult time letting her go. My youngest son alos has a very close relationship with her, and he's been trying to find something he can make for her to take. This will be just the thing! They'll both love it.

Thank you!

Dacia said...

oh so cute!

Julie Harward said...

jcollier528 said...

Good morning! I came across your web site and the little love bird heating pads - what a great idea - I am going to make a couple for our little granddaughter!
Thank you so much!

Renee Wheeler said...

So cute! Might have to make one this afternoon if I have everything. My year old daughter is sitting w/me and just said 'Mommy, I wish I could make an cute owl like that with you'.

Thanks for sharing!

Jaime said...

I love it too. My Daughter will love it.

annemarie said...

Absolutely adorable - I know my grandkids would love these - thanks for sharing the pattern.

kidding...i'm definitely going to have to whip up some of these for my kiddos...they love them some "who-who's" (my 2 year old's words)
thanks so much for the pattern!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Thank you Suzanne! I've off to make one for my granddaughter!

Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures/Treasured Moments said...

Adorable. I made corn pillows, but they were just plain and simple. Love your birds.

Jessica said...

Thank you!! I cannot wait to make these for my children and then they can stop stealing mine ;) They are too cute!!

Jenniffier said...

This is for kids. I want one for me. Probably TMI but I could use a new rice bag heating for you know that time and that one is so much cutier that the long rectangle I did have. I like to add some aromatherpy oils to mine. It would probably work well with kids too.

Mary said...

What a thoughtful and practical project! Thanks so much for the free pattern - I can't wait to make a few of these :)

Stacy said...

Very sweet! My three children will love these! Thank you!

Jen said...

These are so cute! Thanks for sharing the pattern :)

Kiana said...

I love this! Adorable! Thanks for sharing!

Maryam said...

Absolutely positively genius and adorable. I should get a brain and figure out how to make these. Grace and Dani would love them. Literally, every other night they have some ache or pain or are cold!! I could give them a "hootie" and say night night!! love m

Julie said...

Hi Suzanne! These are soooo cute! Hey, I thought of you immediately when I saw Ty Pennington is making fabrics now and some is being given away to commenters on the Cloth, Paper, Scissors blog. The patterns in the fabrics have your name all over them. Info all in the link on my last post...

Mom said...

I can't wait to make these up. Thanks so much for your generosity!

CountryBelle said...

Just wanted to share the little owl I created from your pattern! Thank you! http://happinessis5ive.blogspot.com/2011/02/owl-love-heat-bag.html

Carolynn said...

Oh, those are too cute! Excellent job on designing them. I LOVE my rice pack. Best thing since sliced bread. I love to warm my feet with it in bed and it does help to soothe and send me off to sleep when I warm my tummy with it.

AshleyOk said...

Awesome pattern! Thanks for sharing!

Shelise said...

I LOVE your website. Every time I look at it I just can't believe how much I love your style. I'm glad you share so much of what you do because I have a hard time pin pointing my own style. After seeing all of the things you do I think I like pretty much the same style as you. lol.

These owls are SO cute. I think both of my little boys would love one. The problem is actually making it as cute as you have made them.

Bee said...

Your little love birds are perfectly cute!! I want to make for my grands too as they love to use mine to warm up their tootsies after sledding!
Thanks so much for sharing!
~ Karen

Juliann said...

Chris said...

Oh how CUTE!! My daughter is doing her 2 little girls' room in owls and that would be just the perfect little special thing from "Memee". :) I tried to down load the pattern but it wasn't working ..I'll try to get my husband to see if its me or the computer..:/ that isn't doing something right. LOL

Jeanie said...

adorable!

rickimoo said...

I downloaded your pattern (Thank you) and reduced it 50% and made them for my grandkids. They are always going to the freezer to pull out the cold packs to put on boo boos and the pack I have are larger ones. So I made these and they turned out about the size of your hand with your fingers extended. They love them and they are just the right size for a toddler. Thanks again.

PaulaB said...

Thank you so much! I love your combination of prints.

katy said...

these are too cute, thank you.

Staci said...

Suzanne-
Just letting you know that I made one of these for my neighbor's 20 year old daughter who was in an auto accident today. I teamed it with a romance novel (she's a romance junky like me), a bottle of habanero jelly, and a tag with a little note about heat therapy. The love bird was a HUGE hit.

Sara Hadlow said...

Thanks! My sister in law is expecting and I'm throwing her an owl themed baby shower. I've been obsessed with anything owl lately. They're so cute! This will make a perfect gift for her to warm up the crib when the little one arrives.

Elizabeth said...

What a wonderful gift for your grandchildren. I love that it was handmade by you. I had already sent off my valentines gift to my grandchildren, but I am going to put this at the top of my to-do list for next year. I am going to download this now before I forget!

Kate said...

thank you so much! Now I just have to find the time to actually make them!

Carol Meyer said...

Thank you for the adorable heating pad.
I am going to make these for my grandbabies as well.

I just saw these cute owls and they are adorable.
I am a new sewer and was thrilled with your pattern that you shared and hopefully they are fairly easy to do.
Thank you so much for your kind generosity.

Hugs and Blessings,

I have tried to print this file 4 times from google docs. Pages 1 and 3 keeping coming out completely black. I must be doing something wrong. Could you possibly send me this file and the love bird files as pdf's? I want to use this with some ladies at church for a beginning sewing project this week. Some ladies have asked me to show them how to be crafty and I thought this would be a great get to know your sewing machine project. I think these are so cute. Don't worry no money is changing hands and I am also going to teach them about finding patterns on blogs like yours. Thanks in advance for the help.

Is it ok for a 23-year-old to make this for myself? because I love it and I will use it everyday! thank you.

Thanks for posting these! So cute...I am having an owl themed birthday for my 2 year old, I am planning on making these as favors. Still debating on whether I should make them as pillows or stuff with rice. But I can figure that out later. These really are so cute!
