title: HOW TO SEW SCENTED HOT PADS
I made and sold dozens of these last Xmas.
What I did was sew the four tunnels.
Then for the filling I mixed rice, cloves, cinnamon, bay leaf,
dried orange peel, and cinnamon essential oil.
I mixed them well and aged them for about a week in an air tight container,
then filled the tunnels with them, I then wrapped them in clear cellophane,
tied a raffia bow with a cinnamon stick inserted in the bow, they sold like hot cakes, ($6.50 each), I made several hundred dollars for Xmas gifts.
Hope this helps.
I also heard you can add Velcro at one end of the tunnels to empty the rice,
wash and re-scented the rice.
Here is also another scented hot pad mix. Diana*
