This post is on How to Make DIY Hand Warmers.



What You Will Need:

  • Flannel or cotton fabric (I used flannel fabric because it’s softer)
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Marker
  • Pins
  • Needle and Thread
  • Rice
  • Funnel ( or paper to make a funnel)


Step 1:

Cut your Squares…

To make these DIY Hand Warmers, I like to use 9cm by 9cm squares. If you want a larger seam allowance I suggest making the squares. 10cm by 10cm.

Cut 4 Squares of the material (9×9)


Step 2:

Place right sides together, and sew (hand or machine) around the outside of the square. Leave a gap between the start and finish. This gap should be big enough to pull the fabric through and it should be big enough to fit the funnel for the rice.


Step 3:

Pull the fabric through the gap so it’s the right way out. Next, we are going to fill it with rice. Get your funnel, or make one out of paper if you don’t have one. Fill the bag 1/2 to 3/4 full with rice.


Step 4:

Once filled with rice, hand sew the gap close


Congrats! You have now finished your very own hand warmers.
