Felt Heart Hand Warmers

It seems like most of the country
is experiencing really cold weather.
I like the cold weather, but I don't like being cold!
I also hate the thought of sending
my kids to school out in the cold!

I don't feel near as bad if I can warm
up their hands {and their hearts} with

 Microwavable Felt Heart
Hand Warmers!

Once the hearts are cut,
you may need to trim the edges a bit
to make sure they are the same size and shape.

Use a needle and thread to sew a blanket stitch
around the edges to connect the 2 felt hearts together.

  1. Cute! I will have to give these a try. I actually like sewing by hand as opposed to sewing with a machine. I almost sewed my finger once using a machine and have never quite gotten over my fear of them!

  2. These look amazing! I'll definitely have to make some of these for myself. I have trouble with the cold (Raynaud's Syndrome), and these would be so helpful in the winter. Thanks for sharing at Sweet Inspiration!
