Wool Week- Pocket Warmers

DSC_2148

I spotted these cute pocket warmers on Etsy last week and knew I had to make some.  This project is perfect for using up scraps. 

I made my pocket warmers 3"x3".

To make a pair, cut out 4 pieces that are 3"x3" or whatever size you want them to be. 
Place pieces together with wrong sides facing each other. 
Then sew around 3 of the edges, leaving 1 edge open for filling.
Fill with rice.
Then sew the open end closed.
Trim around the edges to make it all even.
Microwave for 30 seconds and place in your pocket.

It doesn't get much easier than that.

Those are so cute and what a great way to use up your wool stash! Love your coffee cozy's too. A great teacher's gift. I am making the teachers a luggage tag, a luggage handle cover and then putting in some handmade soap that smells divine! Now I just need to get everything made up. That is usually the struggle...getting the time to do it.
