Chilly Willy

How to make a chilly willy:

Supplies: Long remnant of calico (cotton) fabric.
Gel pellets from the plant nursery
Sew a tube long enough to go around your neck with a little extra to use for ties.
Be sure to leave an opening for the pellets. Sew on the ties to each end.
Scoop some of the dry pellets into the tube. Remember, they expand a great deal so don't over do it. Sew up opening.
Get your tube soaking wet in a bowl of water. The water will make the pellets swell up. Stick tube into the refrigerator for a few hours. Remove the tube and tie it around your neck for cool refreshing relief from the heat.
