I cannot understand how these amazing hand warmers ever fell out of fashion. They are superior to gloves or mitts in all ways: they keep your hands warmer, they allow you to quickly pull an unencumbered hand out to unlock a door or answer a call, they keep change, chapstick
, keys and your cell safely within reach, AND they are incredibly easy and quick to make.
I am a very sloppy and impatient seamstress. I cut important corners like ironing and basting, yet the end result here still looks great. This muff took me less than 2 hours to make and cost me nothing, because I used an old coat too ugly and stained to donate, and a scrap of fabric I had lying around.
