Hand Warmers are wonderful and will warm someone’s heart and hands. We have had so much cold weather, these are easy to make and really useful!
Choose a 100% cotton fabric. Prints with snowmen or snowflakes, plaids work well, or just plain colored flannel cloth.
Pin two pieces of fabric, together, wrong side out.
Sewing around all three edges, leaving about an opening on the fourth side.
Turn the square right-side-out.
Fill the square about 75% with rice. I used a funnel inserted in the opening and poured the rice through.
Once filled, sew the opening closed, either by hand or with your machine.
You can also make these as circles, hearts or rectangles. Be as creative as you want. Think about the hands of the person to whom you are giving the hand warmers. Make bigger hand warmers for men, and smaller for children.
Include instructions for use with your hand warmers:
Place warmers in the microwave for 25-30 seconds. Let cool until they are comfortable to hold. Fill your coat pockets with warmth!
Need a special place for cold-weather clothing and you don’t currently have one, let me help you find a new home with plenty of storage space.
