the 12 days of mitten: day 12

For our last day of mitten madness,
here is my favorite use:
hand warmer.

For this project, you will need:
2 mittens,
2 squares of muslin 4.5 x 4.5
1/3 cup of rice or flax seed

Fold the square in half and stitch around 3 sides,
leaving an opening, I find it easier to leave an opening
on the larger side, just in the middle.

Turn it right side out, iron and filled it with rice.

Stitch the opening close
and you are done!

Now just put the inserts in the mittens,
place them in the microwave for 30 s,
grab the warm/hot mittens, put them in your coat pocket
and go enjoy the great but cool outdoor!

Go ahead,
make 2 mittens!
How to: here and here.

Happy sewing!
