So back a while ago someone gave Zac a heart shapped hand warmer (he is in the heart business). Anyway I thought I could recreate one easy. So here goes my first tutorial. I thought it would be perfect for Valentines Day. Wouldn't one of these be a great gift for someone you love?

How to Sew Heart Shaped Hand Warm


  • red Fleece (for heart front) You could also use flannel for both front and back.
  • Red Canvas (for heart back)
  • Heart Template
  • Ribbon
  • Rice (not brown rice...according to my sister it smells funny when you heat it up)

Step 1. 

Cut out 1 heart from fleece and 1 heart from canvas.

Step 2.

 Pin canvas heart to fleece heart. If you want a ribbon tag now is the time to pin it inbetween the two layers. I also like to pin the heart together at the V of the heart.

Step 3. 

Sew heart together leaving a 2-3 inch whole for pouring the rice in.

Step 4.

 Trim the tip off the bottom of the heart so you can get a good point to your heart.

Step 5. 

Cut a slit right between the V of the heart. Helps it turn better.

Step 6. 

Turn the heart right side out.

Step 8.

 Sew hole shut. Not as pretty as I like it but oh well.
Now go throw that baby into the microwave for 1-2 minutes and warm your hands, feet or whatever! Enjoy.

  14. These are fantastic. I can't imagine at the moment having to warm my hands or feet, as it's mid-summer, but I do remember so very cold days last winter where this would have come in very handy (bad un intended).
