When I was in California last month one of my adorable friends (Hi Diane!), made
me one of these little handwarmers. They're made of felt, filled with rice, and embellished
with scraps of fabric. I loved mine so much that I had to make a few more for my Utah friends.
Just cut out two felt hearts about the size of your palm, sew on a smaller fabric heart,
sew the two felt hearts together, leaving a space to fill it with rice, (I used a funnel),
do a running stitch over the machine stitching with
embroidery thread, tie a fabric ribbon around it, and you're done.
When you're ready to go for a walk and it's a little chilly outside, just microwave
your little handwarmer for about 40 seconds, then slip it in your coat pocket.
The warmth seems to last for at least 45 minutes.
My friend Diane said she saw this cute idea on Pinterest.
I love mine. Thank you Diane!
