This will show you how to make microwaveable heated slippers from rice.  

Materials and Supplies:

1.    Soft warm fabric (at least a fat quarter)

2.    pen and paper

3.    scissors

4.    rice (at least 24oz)

5.    sewing machine or needle and thread

6.    tape

Step 1: Heated Slippers

Step One:

First get a pair of shoes and trace them on a piece of paper and cut them out so you have the bottom shoe templates. Second take a sheet of paper, cover the top of your shoe, trace and cut out the shape. Third tape the top and bottom pieces together to make any adjustments to your paper shoe.

Your using dark fabric so it makes it impossible to see what your doing. Could you please redo this with a lighter fabric so I can see how it is done. TY
I Love this idea! My feet are ALWAYS cold. I can't wait to make a pair of these. I threw a vote your way and I hope you are a finalist :)
how long do they stay warm?
About 1 hour.
I always put a half cup of water in the microwave, along side my rice bags. I've read on the webs, this is so they don't catch fire.
I've had a rice bag I made from a pair of jeans for 14 years. Never put water in the microwave with it, and it's never caught on fire, or even smoked. Well, there was that one time I caught it behind the school with a cigarette, but it told me it was just holding it for the hot water bottle.
Clever idea!
Awesome idea! I hate having cold toes!
