When I saw a pin for these cute hand warmers, I decided to make my own version. These are for sale on Etsy on WormeWoole's shop here. I love the cute heart shape but since I'm less of a pro, I decided to make some little squares instead.
I used an old cotton baby blanket from a thrift store. Baby linens are amazing because they're always plentiful in thrift stores and are even better used! I like some of the cutesy animal designs too but this blanket was a nice simple pattern with polka dots. I sewed two 2.5" squares together leaving a little hole to turn the fabric inside out. I had to use a piece of paper to make a funnel small enough to fill the packet with a mixture of rice and lavender. I then sewed the hole to close off the packet. I made three total. Two were sent to my package pal which I'll blog about later but I kept one for me. 30 seconds in the microwave and my hands are toasty warm and happy!
