Welcome to Day 12 of my 12 Days of Christmas.

Today I share how to make easy DIY  pocket hand warmers.

Oh the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we’ve no place to go,
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

I saw this idea on Sadies Seasongoods and was hooked on the plaid.

Here’s what you need:

  • flannel or fleece
  • rice or lentils
  • needle and thread or a sewing machine

With the right sides of the fabric facing together, stitch around the edges, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance and leaving about a 1/2 inch opening. Turn right side out and fill about 3/4 full with your rice or lentils. Stitch the opening closed and you are done.

In a microwave, heat the pair up for 25-30 seconds and they will stay nice and toasty for about 3o minutes.

Here is a link to a cute tag you can use if you plan to give them as a gift.

    I, too, saw these on Sadieseasongoods, too, and fell in love with the plaid, also! I wish I had made some myself, maybe next winter! It gets pretty cold here in the Midwest! Thanks for linking up over at Vintage Charm. Hope to see you again next week! xoKathleen Charm Bracelet Diva {At Home}
