I thought for my kids teachers it would be fun to make them these little heart hand warmers for Valentines day. I made a little tutorial in case you would like to make some too.
Flannel - this just depends on how many you want to make. Each heart takes two 5" squares of fabric. So for two hearts I would get 2 - 5" x 10" piece's of fabric just to be safe.
Patterned Fabric - Same as the Flannel
Rice - 1/3 - 1/2 cup of rice for each heart.
Pattern - Download here
Tags - Download here (optional)
Step 2 - Layer your fabric - flannel, right side of fabric, wrong side of fabric, flannel. Trace pattern on the top layer and pin.
Step 3 - Cut out your hearts
Step 4 - Make sure your fabrics are layered like in picture #4
Step 6 - Turn heart right side out with the patterned fabric on the outside of the heart. Fill our heart with rice. If your going to use your sewing machine to stitch up the heart be careful not to fill the heart too full or your presser foot wont stay on the heart as you try and stitch it up. Or fill it as full as you'd like and stitch closed by hand.
If you want to make the tags - just cut a piece of fabric a little smaller then your card-stock tag. You can make the tag easy enough, or I just bought mine at the local craft store. I sewed the fabric and happy Valentines paper on the front and the directions on the back.
Package up nice and pretty!
