Hand Warmers or Bean Bags. :-)

It's Monday! Who doesn't LOVE Monday's? Its' the day after the weekend. So you are rested and ready to take on the week. :-) Of course, who isn't looking forward to Friday? Today I have decided to post a tutorial on how to make hand warmers and bean bags. :-)

To begin, for ONE you will need:
Two pieces of 5" by 5" fabric
A sewing machine
1/2 cup of rice

1. Cut your fabric 5 X 5
2. Place the fabric cute side to cute side.
3. Sew three of the four edges. Be sure to back stitch where you start and stop!

 4. Trim the edges and corners if you want to. I chose to.

 5. Turn them right side out.
 6. Add your half a cup of rice to ONE of the pouches.

 7. Fold the open edges down into the bag.

 8. Sew the open edge closed. Be sure to back stitch where you start and stop!

All done! :-)
To warm them up, just pop them in the microwave for a short amount of time.

For a rainy day when the kids are saying "I'm bored. What can we do?" and they don't want to clean, cut some holes in a card board box, and have them toss them into it. :-)

These are on my Etsy shop if you would like to just purchase them. They are $5.00 for two hand warmers.

I hope you have a great day! :-)
