An environmentally friendly project that's also perfect for our climate changing world. No matter where you live, you are likely to encounter some super hot days during your summer. This icy cool neck wrap allows you to stay cool while you’re out and about outdoors, and it can also let you exercise indoors with greater comfort. What's even better is that you can likely get most of the materials needed to make this from the back of your closet. It's a great recycling opportunity!
I got the idea for this project after coming across similar items that use expanding water crystals. They would have to be doused in water and regenerated after each use and I could envision no easy way to wash them. My version solves both problems by employing reusable ice cubes with a removable outer sleeve.

A budding seamstress in my youth, I abandoned the hobby for almost three decades. Then I discovered that people sewed "stuff" besides clothes and quilts. What an eye-opener! The discovery led to a personal sewing journey... one that has seen me progress from student to designer. Check in with me every Saturday morning to see what new discoveries I've made and soak up inspiration from freebies that you won't find here. (P.S. Looking for the best deal? My patterns are ALWAYS sale priced directly from my blog... some are even free!) Check it out at esheepdesigns.blogspot.com
