Make Winter Hand Warmers
Make Winter Hand Warmers as stocking stuffers or as a beginning sewing project. Teens if you want a little something personal to give to your close friends…these are perfect. You can create different designs or make them all the same. Every time they put their hands in their pockets the warmth will remind them of you.

- Cut fabric (with pinking shears) into shape of choice. You’ll need two identical pieces of fabric for each hand warmer.
- Pin fabric for each hand warmer together so pattern faces out. Make sure edges align.
- Sew fabric around edges (about three quarters complete) and leave small opening to fill with rice.
- Scoop rice into opening, filling pod about half way. Put straight pin through fabric so rice stays to one side.
- Sew small opening shut and remove pin.
- If you’ve created a hand warmer creature, use colored felt to cut shapes for eyes, ears, nose and mouth and secure into place with hot glue.
- If using googly eyes, make sure they’re heat safe. Secure into place with hot glue.
