Anyway, I used this tutorial (minus the serging parts, I don't have a serger). Also minus any essential oils because if it's going to look like a bag of rice, it's certainly going to smell like one too. Ha!
Anyway, I double stitched it down with two small rows of zigzag, and though it looks nice, it's not going to last. A thick canvas would have been better, and sewn on as a circle for maximum "grip". Ah well. Live and learn and remember you have a physics minor for a reason! :P

Do you have a heating pad? If not, you should make one..or five!
