Make a Pair of Hand Warmers



Slip these into your pockets on those really cold days to keep your hands toasty warm:



Fabric/wool leftovers from previous projects (charity shop jumper)
Sewing machine
Scissors/pinking shears



  1. Cut 4 squares of fabric or wool (from a charity shop jumper) the same size using the pinking shears for a nice edge.
  2. Stitch three sides (the right sides on the outside) with your sewing machine leaving an opening. If you do not have a sewing machine, hand stitch – making sure to leave no gaps.
  3. Fill with rice.
  4. Stitch the opening closed.

Heat your hand warmers in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds and slip into your pockets to keep your hands warm for up to 1 hour.
