Heated Cuddle Buddy

This is Toast, and he's not just a cute cuddly face. Pop him in the microwave and then between the sheets for a warm start to any cold night. He'd make a great gift for children and can also be used on aches and pains. 

He's also super easy to make!!

Unable to locate actual pattern, useless accessing the tutorial when you cant find the pattern


I haven’t read it all but I sure do hope you specified everything used for this MUST be 100% cotton, including thread and fabric. Just like the bowl cozies so popular, if not made 100% cotton, it will melt or even catch fire in the microwave.


Can you use “bucky” instead of the rice?


hello, I just want to draw your attention to the materials to make the Toast heat pack. Any heat pack that goes into a microwave must be 100% cotton only – so no fleece. And all sewing thread must be 100% cotton as well. This is a safety measure to prevent sudden combustion or fire in the microwave. Heat for 1-2 minutes only and a cup of cold water should also be placed in the microwave alongside the heat pack prior to heating.
Hope this helps to keep everyone safe.


This is so sweet. I want one for me! Any flat animal pattern will do.. I may make a whole menagerie!
