As Seen On Today’s ‘Take Five’ Craft Segment: Flannel Hand Warmer How-to

It’s been a super cold winter here in West Michigan which has inspired me to make some cozy crafts like these microwavable flannel hand warmers to warm up my family and friends. This is an easy project and perfect for using up those tiny scraps of flannel in your stash. Read on for directions.

Supplies:

Flannel scraps (I cut mine in 2 1/5″ x 5″ strips for warmers to slip in my gloves and made 2 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ inch strips for the pocket sized version.)

Rice (You won’t need much for these. A cup or two will make several little warmers.)

Plastic funnel (or a piece paper folded into a funnel shape)

sewing machine

needle and thread

1) Fold your flannel strips in half with right sides facing. Start on the fold and sew along cut edge, leaving about a 1 1/4″ opening to turn the piece right side out.

2) Clip the corners and turn right side out.

3) Use your funnel to fill with rice, and use a needle and thread to sew the opening closed.

4) Heat warmers for 30 seconds to a minute and then slip into your gloves or pockets before you head out into the cold.

A lot of the stores locally told me they don’t make leg warmers for ballet in her size. Very disappointed.

  2. MCQ: Sure. I think they were dating right around the time Steve Martin and Snoop Dog got baptized. (This lame Mormon legend started because if someone uses the word “temple” it must be about Mormons. Hence, “Love is a temple, love the higher law” had to have been referring to something Mormon.)

  3. Romney was becoming Reaganesque toward the end of his campaign. He worked hard, and performed well in the debates. You can't seriously blame him for this loss. His Super PACs didn't go for the jugular like Obama's did, but he can't control them anyway. I can't think of any Republican who could have done better this time around.___________________________________I totally agree with this, and with a kinda fair media, I do believe Romeny would have been elected.
