These hand warmers will keep your hands warm in the cold. Enjoy!

Just pop them in the microwave for 20 seconds and let them cool!

Supplies:

Step 1: Gather Materials

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

- White rice

- sewing machine

- fabric scissors (or normal scissors)

- sharpie, pen, or pencil

- ruler

Step 2: Cut

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

Step 3: Sewing

- 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

Step 5: Fill

- Fill with white rice 3/4 of the way full (I used a funnel and a cup to fill it)

Step 6: Sew Closed

- Pinch the top closed and stitch it closed (make sure you reverse at the beginning and end)

- Finally cut the lose strings and you are done!!

- Just pop them in the microwave for 20 seconds and let it cool-

    You know, you could probably make a full sized neck pillow this way. Then you could support and heat hurt neck.

    Yes, I made one for my mom like that. I just changed the heating time to 1 minute.
