Felt Heart Hand Warmers

how to make hand warmers

You’ll need

  • 1-2 pieces of felt
  • Embroidery floss and a needle
  • Rice
  • Dried lavender or essential oil (optional)

Step 1: Fold the felt in half and cut out a heart shape. Use this as your template and cut three more heart shapes.

Step 2: Knot the embroidery thread at the end and thread the needle. Start sewing 2 heart shapes together.

Step 3: When you’re about 3/4 of the way around the heart, add the rice and lavender inside. The amount will vary based on the size of your heart. Use your finger to evenly distribute. But don’t pack it in because you’ll need to be able to sew it shut!

Step 4: Finish sewing and knot to secure.

To use, stick them in the microwave for 20-30 second and tuck them into your pockets for toasty fingers. Stay warm!

    These are absolutely adorable and I LOVE felt…like seriously sneak and buy it and stash it away because my hubby thinks i’m nuts over constantly buying it but I love it:) You can do so much with felt!!! Question though…I’ve never tried handwarmers with the felt only because I heard felt doesn’t hold up good in the microwave…you have had good results with this though?

    I really would love to make these for the hubby, but we no longer have a microwave…. I wonder if there is something I could make that he could still use to keep those fingers toasty or if there is some other way to warm these things up.
