Unfortunately, most of us have to spend at least some time sitting at a desk or table. Whether we work full-time in an office, or have to catch up on odd jobs like accounts, writing, sewing, artwork, even eating. And when sedentary, our circulation tends to be less effective, which at this time of year means that our feet can get cold. Ever had that?
 
Well, that was the reasoning behind making one of these furry foot warmers – for those chilly days when you just have to be sat at a desk. And I have to admit that it feels awesome. Very comfortable, extremely warm, and sensual to boot.
 
Of course, you don’t have to use real fur. We keep rabbits as a way of providing our family with the meat that we eat. The fur is a by-product, albeit a luxurious one. Rather than waste this commodity, we tan the pelts and make all kinds of warm and beautiful items. For more info about raising rabbits for meat, or tanning the hides, click here.
 
I’ve made two of these warmers so far. I started out doing a 14” square, but it was a little big. For this kind of thing, cozy is definitely a better option, so I did another at 10” square. It’s perfect for both my husband (size 10 ½) and I (size 7). This is the size that this article will describe.

I'd make a pair so I can walk with it. A very good idea for sub-zero weather.
