Since it has been so cold lately, thought this would be a perfect time to post about this simple DIY project. These are a wonderful and quick handmade gift! Had made few for coworkers to warm up in the chilly office.
- Couple of different fabric of your choice
- Fabric Square Template (Free printable here: Download Fabric Square Template)
- Sewing Machine or Thread and Scissors
- Uncooked Rice
- Instruction Tags Template (Free printable here: Download Handwarmer Instructions Tags)
Step 1: Using the Fabric Template printable, cut fabric into 4.5x4.5 inch squares. Pin the pieces of fabric together, wrong side out. Mark the fabric with the 3.5x3.5 inch square to be sewn.
Step 2: For both sewing machine and hand stitching, sew around three of the edges, leaving one side open.
Step 3: Turn square right side out.
Step 4: Fill square 3/4 of the way with rice (A funnel/spoon/scooper works best)
Step 5: Fold in the edges and hand sew the last reminding side.
Step 6: Package with instructions and WARM UP!
