I bought two of these neck cooling bands a few years ago at Dollar Tree for a trip to the beach. We've used them many times and I always threatened to make more............ AND finally I made 7 more.
I used some steps from this tutorial. I would make them longer. Maybe 44" length. And I wouldn't sew a parallel seam in the middle of the 14" pocket for the gel. Making it easier to evenly distribute the water filled gel to fill the entire pocket.
Each band only took 1/2 tsp of the gel crystals. I have plenty leftover. Guess what the family is getting for Christmas!
Easy, fast, and I am so thankful I did! They came in handy and helped cool us off. It was 97 degrees and there wasn't a cloud in sight. No wind either. Just plain old HOT!
