  • My gran makes her own and we get them for christmas they are brilliant. All she does is buys some oats from the supermarket and makes a bag out of old material with an inner bag incase it splits. you could add some lavender for a nice sleepy smell, but i like the oat smell. Just bung it in the microwave for a minute and voila a snuggly warm bag!

    Lidl had them about a month ago.

    It might be worth a visit to see if they have any left.
    I used to be indecisive but now I am not sure.

    Are we talking porrige oats here, as in Quaker??
    I love porrige, but would never have thought about using it for a filling!
    I let my mind wander and it never came back!
  • i assume they are porridge oats, im not sure????????? are there other types of oats???

    Just make sure you dont buy popcorn by mistake lol, that could be a disaster!

  • Hi,

    I make these and sell on ebay/craft stalls.

    They're made just like trolley dolly described but I use wheat not oats if that is any help, you can usually buy from the health food shops.

    You can also make them up to put underneath casserole dishes etc on your table to keep it warm.

    I've got a plug in heat pad. It's like a little electric blanket about the size of a small hand towel. That works brilliant for back pain, as you can lay it flat against the chair back or on your bed/sofa, and lay against it for pain relief. I also tuck it down the front of my trousers to ease period pains :o

    It's well worth the money, and it doesn't cool down like tradtional hot water bottles or the microwave things.
    Here I go again on my own....
