Warm Heart, Warm Hands

Standard

Here’s a little project I made for someone special to keep her hands warm on the way to work while getting a *hug* from the two loves of her life. Filled with rice, just pop them in the microwave for a minute or so and put them in your pockets. Please visit Trixie’s Blog for a tutorial . . . thank you for the inspiration, Trixie! ♥

  1. I love this idea – they’d make great stocking stuffers. I was thinking of you today as I opened a bag of clothes from my sister in law – she had 3 accidentally shrunken and felted wool sweaters in there and I immediately thought, pillows and wrist/arm warmers – and now i can use them to make these too.

  2. Those are adorable. My son bought me a roll you can use on back or neck filled with herbs you pop in the microwave to relieve sore muscles. I don’t have a microwave but putting it on a tray in the oven worked just as well, now I have to borrow an oven from a neighbor to warm mine.

  3. I love this idea. I am going to make some for my kids to have in their pockets for the walk to school this winter. I didn’t know rice would warm like that. Just plain uncooked rice?
    It feels like we have lost a lot of these lovely traditional ideas but blogland is so great I get to reclaim them :)
    Thanks for sharing.
    Can I reblog?

  5. Very cute and practical– I think I might make some for the kids to hold onto at the bus stop in the morning and some for me for my morning walk with our dog. I agree with faydanamyjake: it seems like these ideas get lost over time. Thanks for sharing it!
