Is it getting cold where you live? We’re dipping into the 50′s already. The 50′s! That’s freezing for me! Possibly because I don’t own a non-pregnancy coat (need to shop, stat). Samuel is 5 months now, and I refuse to go anywhere near pregnancy clothes again – ever.
Anyway, I’ve found the cutest way to stay warm. How adorable are these heart hand warmers? They were the perfect anniversary gift for the hubby last week. And wouldn’t you love to find a pair of these tucked into your Christmas stocking?
Want to whip up a couple of your own? It’s so easy!
Felt Heart Hand Warmers
- 1-2 pieces of felt
- Embroidery floss and a needle
- 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!
