Valentine Hand Warmers

Remember our DIY Pocket Hand Warmers that make a great simple gift for teachers or friends?  With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we thought we'd try this fun, easy gift in heart shaped form.  


  • fabric of choice (cotton and flannel work great)
  • rice
  • sewing machine
  • pinking shears

Step One: Cut out 2 heart-shaped pieces of fabric.  (This project is a great way to use your scrap pieces of fabric you've been saving.)

You can make any size hand warmer that you want.  Here is what we used.

Step Two: Place 2 pieces of fabric wrong sides together. Using a 1/4" seam allowance, sew around heart leaving about a 1" gap to add rice. 

Step Three: Fill your warmer about 2/3 - 3/4 full with rice. 

Step Four: Sew opening closed.

Step Five: Using your pinking shears, trim around edges.

Make just one, or make a few!  Add a tag and deliver to your friends and families this Valentine's Day!
