As I've said it's been super duper cold here lately, and we keep our thermostat fairly low. I needed something to help keep my hands warm. So I made a hand-warmer.
I got the idea here, but with mine I wanted to make the outside washable (notice the marker line from my dear daughter already on it). This is where my handy-dandy snap pliers get to strut there stuff. The inside square I cut 6x6, sewed up with half inch seams. Filled them with beans or rice and sewed shut. My cover I cut 6x7, then sewed up three sides, leaving one side completely open. Then I placed my rice bag on top to kinda gauge how far I needed to turn down and topstitch the opening. My snap pliers were put to work next adding three snaps to close up my hand-warmer. Alternately you could use velcro.
My favorite part is the soft Chenille back. Lovely.
