Make it: Fleece Hand Warmers

Here is an easy, quick and minimal effort equals maximum cuteness craft.  They are homemade handwarmers! Once completed these adorable mini bags of rice get popped in the microwave for 30 secs and voila they retain the heat for about 15-20 mins. Pop them in your pocket and head out for a walk or keep them in your pocket while watching a football game.

Cut simple shapes like squares or in my case hearts out of fleece.

Stitch together two pieces leaving a small 1/2 inch opening.

Get some rice or lentils.

Fashion a funnel out of paper or use a small one from the kitchen and fill up with rice.

Stitch the hole closed, trim the strings an you are finished.

Pop them in the microwave and keep your hands toasty warm during the chilly days ahead.
