Step 1: Gather Materials

- two 4 by 4 squares of fabric (you will need two squares per hand warmer)

Step 2: Cut

-Using your ruler measure two 4 by 4 squares and cut them out.

- Take the two squares and put them right sides together

- Starting 3/4 way down one side stitch the two panels together

- When you get to the last side (the one that you started on) stop about 1 inch from your starting stitch

Step 4: Turn It Inside Out

- Push the fabric through the 1 inch opening

- using a pen, pencil, or marker push the end of the the marker in to the corners from the inside making them pointy
