Found my bag of moisture retaining crystals and had to make up a few batches of neck coolers. My recipe for a refreshing neck cooler? Materials: 
4”x40” strip of calico cotton fabric
1 teaspoon of Soil Moist (or other plant moisture retaining crystals)
You’ll need scissors or a rotary cutter, measuring tool, iron and sewing machine or serger.
Sew up the long edges of the fabric, right sides together, and turn rightside out. I have a handy little tool that helps me with this part.
Iron your tube so the seem is centered on one side.
Trim your edges in a 45 degree angle.
Fold fabric in half and measure 6” from the center. Mark with a pin on one side where you need to sew the first topstitch and sew securely.
Place 1 teaspoon of crystals in your tube (the longest part). Make sure the crystals all fall down close to your topstitching.
Fold tube in half and mark the matching length from the center to finish the pocket and topstich to secure the crystals in the center of the necktie.
Serge or hem edges.
Stay cool by placing these neckties in some water and allowing them to expand. Keep in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. Rehydrate as needed. [pictured - collage of process with helper kitty Zoe]
