**Update** I got the green marker out and the little heat packs don’t look any worse for the wear!! Oh, washable markers, how I love you! xoxo
Two years ago and before I owned a sewing machine, my mom helped me stitch up some little heat packs. You fill them up with rice or wheat and then heat them in the microwave for a minute or two before you go to bed on cold nights. Of course I never finished the project, so today, I pulled them out, filled them with rice and stitched them up. Finally! Eleven little gifts for my kids’ neighborhood friends for practically nothing:
Wait. Did you notice the green marker on all of them?!
After my 2-year-old Princess Head and I filled them with rice and I stitched them closed, she carried them out to the family room, making a pile. I didn’t realize that she also had a green marker and we had an extracurricular project going on in the other room. I refuse to have anything but washable markers within a mile of my kids, so I hope I can scrub this out without making the fabric look bad.
It is seriously a wonder that I try to get anything done around here.
At least it wasn’t this again:
Yep, that’s my brand-new sewing machine cover. I might have thrown a little fit. But Mom, before you cry for me, don’t. It was washable marker again so I scrubbed it and now it looks like this again:
I heart washable markers. Bye! I’m going to scrub some flannel.
