I love those little hand warmer packets, but I hate how wasteful they are. They last for up to several hours, but after that it’s into the landfill. Still, my hands get so cold during the winter that I had to do something, so I made my own reusable version.

You will need:

• Uncooked rice

• Scrap fabric

• Standard sewing supplies (needle, thread, scissors, or sewing machine)

Time required:

• 10-20 minutes

All you need to do to make these little guys is gather some scrap fabric (cotton or a cotton blend such as flannel is ideal) between 2.5 and 4 inches (depending on the size of your hand). Cut the scraps to even squares, turn them wrong side out, and sew 3 out of 4 sides.

After that, turn them right side out and fill them about halfway full with uncooked rice from the pantry. Then just stitch up the top, and you’re done!

To use, pop them in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds. The rice holds the heat in, letting you warm your paws all winter long. My favorite thing is to heat them up right before going outdoors and slide them into the palm of my hand inside my gloves. The gloves help the warmers hold the heat longer and protect my hands from the icy cold.

Stay warm!
