Have you ever gone outside on a snowy day for a snow ball fight?  What is usually the first thing to get cold and drive you indoors?  Okay, the second thing; your hands.  These are really simple hand warmers made fleece and rice.  You heard me, rice. You could use any other grain you have on hand, but I have rice, so rice is what I used.  This Instructable is to teach you How to Make Sewn Hand Warmers. Let’s get started.

Step 1:

Fleece cut into 4-5 inch squares (two per hand warmer)
Rotary cutter
Cutting mat
Straight edge
Sewing machine
Rice (+/- 6 cups)
¼ c, dry measuring cup

these look sooo cozy,I wasn't sure how well the fleece would hold up in the microwave. How long do you put them in there for?
30 seconds, lasts about 1 hour.
Ooh, so how long does the heat last?
+/- 1 hour Thanks for looking.
