Here is a nice tutorial to make a hot cat neckpad. Heat this cat in your microwave for 3 minutes and enjoy!
Step 1: Materials
Big paper for pattern
Heat resistent fabric (cotton)
Rice or cherry pits
Step 2: The Pattern
Draw on a paper 2 circles in each other with diameter of 7 and 15 ( or more) cm. (= 2.8 and 5.9 inch). You can make the outer circle bigger for a fatter cat. Draw feet, head and tail like on the picture. Cut out the pattern. Draw the pattern 2 times on your fabric and cut out.
Step 3: Sew
Pin the two pieces together with the right side facing in. Sew together but keep a small part unstitched for turning inside out. Cut out the cat.
Step 4: Filling
Turn inside out. Pull the fabric through the opening. You can use a pencil to poke the ears, feet and tail of the cat. Fill the cat with the rice of cherry pits with the funnel through the opening. Stitch the opening. Done!
Step 5: Heat
Heat the cat in your microwave and put her in your neck. Enjoy!
