Learn how to sew hand warmers in the shape of hearts! Use felted wool and rice to sew up this quick project. Great for any season and sewing ability!
I have been using a few hand warmers lately to help with the chilly weather. The heater is on, but it’s still freezy! That’s how I feel!
I had a cute pair, but they were cooked too many times and no longer worked. It was time to make me some new ones.
For these hand warmers I used felted wool sweaters. I keep a little pile in the sewing cottage for different projects.
These are sweaters that have either been accidentally been shrunk or I shank, or felted them myself.
I also thought that because they might not be fully felted and they have larger stitching holes I use an added layer of muslin.
I used white, but maybe should have used a pink fabric to blend better with the wool.
- felted wool
- pinking shears
- muslin fabric
Heart Hand Warmers Tutorial:
- Make a heart template and cut out
- Cut out 2 hearts out of muslin and 2 hearts out of wool
- Layer the 2 muslin hearts, wool heart on top and bottom
- Sew all the way around the heart, leaving a 1″ opening for rice filling
- Use a funnel and fill with rice
- Sew the opening closed
- Using pinking shears, trim the edges
How to use heart hand warmers:
Warm in the microwave for 30-45 seconds.
These don’t take long to make and because they are sewn by machine and the edges are pinking sheared, they make up super quick!
