How to Make Hand Warmers
Just like the TruMoo caramel hot chocolate, these little hand warmers will keep you toasty!
You’ll need rice, thread, scissors, pinking shears, a sewing machine and flannel material.
I cut the flannel into 2- 1/2″ by 3″ pieces. You don’t have to worry about cutting them perfectly because you’re going to cut the ends with pinking shears.
Sew the edges of the bag with a zig zag stitch and then add a little rice. It helps to use a funnel. You can use a rounded piece of paper to help you fill the bag too. Don’t overfill it because you need room to sew it shut. Pinning it closed will keep you from spilling the rice while you sew.
I’m using the Brother SE400 to sew but you can do this by hand too!
When you’re finished sewing, cut the raw edges with pinking shears. They give a cute look, clean up the edges and help stop any unraveling.
Now your hand warmer is finished! Warm it in the microwave for 8 to 10 seconds to keep your hands toasty! These make a thoughtful gift!
Get crafty and stay warm with these fun and tasty ideas!
