Doing farm chores in the winter is a bit more pleasant when your hands are warm. Mitten and gloves and be cumbersome when you need your fingers free. These cute felt hand warmers couldn't be easier to sew up and they not only make for toasty warm hands in the cold weather, but also are wonderful holiday gifts or stocking stuffers.

Here's what you will need:

  • 100% wool felt in assorted colors (don't use polyester felt, it can melt when you heat it up)

  • Coordinating sewing thread

  • Red embroidery floss/embroidery needle

  • Filler (corn, rice, beans, etc)

Here's what you do:

Cut two 5" squares from each color felt then cut each square into a heart shape. Hand stitch your words with the embroidery floss (I just free-handed it) and then with the right sides together, sew along the outer edge, leaving a 1" opening. Carefully trim along the seams with sharp scissors, as close to the stitching as you can. Turn each heart right side out and machine stitch along the edge, stopping at your opening. Fill each heart with your filler and then neatly hand stitch the openings shut.

Lisa, hand warmers were every where when I was a kid. The neighborhood parks would build up a dirt berm around a square area and when the temperature should to stay cold for the rest of the winter, the city would flood the area with water that froze into the best ever ice skating ponds. Everyone came with hand warmers while we skated the pond playing hockey or just skating for fun. Your hand warmer looks to be an easy project and has great Christmas present potential. ***** Have a great hand warmer day.
