I promised you in this post that I would tell you how I made the Microwavable Hand Warmers. These are very easy to make and are inexpensive as well. (This post may contain affiliate links.

What You Need
- Sewing machine (or use a friends!)
- Material for actual warmer.
- Material for warmer cover.
- Matching thread.
- Field corn (I get this from my local farm supply store).
How to Make
- First thing you will do is cut the material for the warmer into the shape and size you want. In this example, these are square and fit my hand size.
- I sewed the fabric for the warmer (a simple white fabric) on three sides only, and then turned it inside out.
- I filled the warmer with enough field corn to make it full, but not stuffed tight.
- Then I turned in the open side of the warmer and sewed it up.
- Next I made the warmer cover by using the warmer I just made as a template for the size needed. I hemmed one edge that would become the opening. Place the pieces back to back that you just hemmed, sew the three sides that are not hemmed. Below is a picture of the warmer cover turned inside out, the hemmed side (the opening) is at the top and the other three sides are sewn shut.
- Turn the warmer cover inside out again and insert the warmer!
- These are great because you can wash the warmer cover as needed.
To use, simply microwave to desired warmth and put in your pockets and keep your hands warm!
