Make Something – DIY Hand Warmers

A Warm Heart Keeps Your Fingers Toasty



cute, quick and quite thrifty

So I was planning to share some lovely Spring craft ideas with you, seeing as Make Something is one of this week’s Thrifty Habits. But I changed my mind when I realised that Spring has failed to launch. It is freezing so I suggest you make these cute, quick and quite thrifty hand warmers from The Idea Room for the coming ice-age.

Actually, they are very thrifty because they are made using old scraps of fabrics and filled with rice so they are practically free. No rice? From experience, oats work too. (Pasta, cornflakes, not so much.) No fabric scraps? Look carefully at any clothes you and yours are throwing out for recyclable fabric.

DIY-Hand-Warmers-3If the weather suddenly improves (ha!) you could put them away for Christmas to use as stocking fillers. In fact, go on and make lots to give away next Christmas. I intend to – partly because Amy from The Idea Room has made cute labels and it would be rude not to use them, but mainly to give me something to do while I wait for Spring to reboot. It may take a while.

Happy making and may the sun shine upon you, eventually.
