I love the idea of making ice packs for my kids or as a gift for others. Many people call these “boo boo bags” and it’s a cute way to make this less difficult for the kids! Whenever someone tells me to “just” put an ice pack on a toddler’s bumps and bruises, I laugh and I laugh and I laugh. They don’t sit still well and you’d think you were killing them.

This makes it more fun! I’ll mention that I made mine with fleece. I would recommend a regular red and white cotton or knit fabric for the main portion of the bag. It’s a bit thinner and I think the coolness will convey through the bag better. The fleece definitely felt a bit warm still, despite being put in the freezer.


  • Fleece/Felt/Knit Fabric (or other non fraying fabric) for the black and white details on the Pokeball
  • Red/White fabrics of your choice for the main bag. A thinner fabric may help keep the bag cooler- the fleece was pretty warm, even when put through the freezer.
  • Rice and funnel
  • Sewing machine
  • Needle and thread to hand sew

I used rice for the inside of mine, but I’d recommend making the cover removable if you use rice. Otherwise you can’t really wash it without cooking the rice (ask me how I know!).
