Quick gift: Cozy hand warmers
Still have a few people left on your list? Here's a quick and cute gift you can whip up in 20 minutes or less!
These little hand warmers are filled with rice and are perfect for slipping in your pocket before you run out the door! I made a few extra for myself for those chilly late evening/early morning walks with my dog.
4 pieces of 3"x3" cotton fabric (no blends)
Pin two pieces of fabric together, wrong side out
Use your machine to sew around the edges, leaving at least an inch open
Turn square right side out
Fill square 3/4 of the way with rice (I used a spoon)
Hand sew or machine stitch the pocket opening
Package your hand warmers in a cute bag and be sure to include instructions for use (shown in third photo above).
Now you have more time for eggnog and mistletoe (you're welcome).
