I've been thinking about entering the Sew Warm contest for awhile but couldn't decide on a project.  This idea came from my son and I thought it would be fun.  These are fingerless gloves but with a pocket sewn in so you can insert a little handwarmer.  They can be worn with the pocket on the back of your hand or switch them around and the warmer will be in your palm.

Step 1: Gathering Supplies

You will need

1/2 yard fleece - less if you don't want them up to your elbows
paper to draw your pattern
sewing machine
2 buttons
hand warmers so you can make your pocket to size 

The pocket for these "Hotties" was 3" x 4" but a different brand may be a different size.
Ok...so could i pay you to make these for me? Im a MailLady and these would definitely come in handy.
I just love how wonderfully warm these look :) You should enter this into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
What a great idea! I hadn't thought of that, I entered leg warmers but now I'm going to enter these too :-)
Love this
Thanks! <br>
I love staying warm too! The older I get the more I like to be warm and cozy. I had never used the little warmers before and it turns out once the bag is opened they start heating up even if you don't do all the shaking and squeezing they tell you is necessary because they are air activated. I had warm cozy hands yesterday when I was making the gloves but at least they are cheap.
Awesome! I was thinking of making some of these and/or some small little rice filled hearts or shapes of sorts for just grabbing on the go - I love anything to do with staying warm!!!
I could have used these when I worked on the dairies in Idaho!
If I use a heavy duty needle made for denim or upholstery fabric I can manage to sew through some pretty heavy stuff, even with my very old sewing machines.
Very nice! I like the way it goes farther up the arm. It will overlap nicely with a long sleeve shirt or jacket. When I first saw the picture I though you used soft buckskin. I wonder how that would do in a sewing machine?
