I was on the phone with my Father In law the other day and he was telling me about these hand warmers that they useto sale to put in your pockets to keep your hands warm when your out in the bitter cold.
I thought that was a fantastic thing to have so i look online and really could not find any.
So I decided to come up with something on my own along the same idea as a rice therapy bag just small enough to put in your pocket.
Of course they had to be cute and soft. So I used fun fabric and Chenille that I had left over from bibs and burp rags that I had made.
So they were super easy!
So here is what you need!
essential oil or spices(if you want)
something to cut with rotary cutter or scissors or what ever else you can think of
First i cut 2 squares out of the cotton fabric and then 2 out of the chenille.
I cut them 5X5 you can make them bigger or smaller.
then put right sides together
Then sew a 1/4 seam all away around leaving a one inch opening for the rice.
then turn right side out and fill with rice.
I filled it with a cup of rice.
I then sewed a seam across the opening to seal it shut.
I forgot to take a pic.
You could also whip stitch it if you wanted too.
And walla you are done
Now all you need to do is heat them in the microwave for about a minute and a half.
Then stick the warmers in your favorite coat pocket and have fun out in the cold while your had stays toasty warm.
