A great craft that can help keep those little hands warm when it’s really cold outside. This is a no sew project that even the littlest of helpers can make. It uses 2 fabric squares and 1/4 cup of rice. Simple and easy to make and heats up in no time using the microwave.
Start by cutting (2) 4″ x 4″ fabric squares. Use sharp scissors or a sharp rotary cutter. With the wrong side of the fabric facing up, lay a bead of fabric glue along the edge of 3 sides. Place the other square of fabric on top with wrong sides facing each other and press the edges for the glue to hold. Let the fabric glue dry 24 hours.
Come back and fill the pocket with rice. Place a thin line of fabric glue on the inside edge of the pocket and press the sides together to seal the pocket closed. Let the glue dry over night.
To warm it up, place it in the microwave. Test it out at 30 seconds, and increase until desired temperature. Place the warmer inside the jacket pocket and you are ready to brave the frigid outdoors. The pocket warmer stays warm for 8 – 10 minutes.
