Heart Felted Pocket Handwarmers

If you are like me, you are no stranger to cold hands in the wintertime.  Despite my mittens and gloves my hands just have the most difficult time warming up.  I also have been known from time to time to dash out to the chicken coop forgetting my gloves.  One way that I try and fight the cold weather is by carrying these darling felted heart pocketwarmers in my coat.  With some felt, dried lavender and rice, you too can make these.  I think they make a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day. You can even try stitching on messages of love if you are handy with a needle.

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

  • How sweet are those hand warmers! What a great gift idea!

  • So, So cute Melissa! and practical too!
    I'm sharing a lovely guest post today from Manuela of A Cultivated Nest Blog! She's going to show us how to make our own Coffee Sign…
    thanks for hosting your wonderful hop!

  • Your pocket hand warmers are so cute! I need some of those. Yesterday I checked for eggs and found one hen sitting on a couple. I picked them up and they were so warm, so they were like nature's hand warmers!

    I linked up my post with some chicken portraits this week. Thanks for hosting, Melissa!

  • Thank you for the email reminder about your link party! You are very clever.

    And I love your hand warmer idea!!!

  • So cute – and a great gift to send to my kids in college. Thanks for sharing (and hosting)!

  • I love the idea of putting lavender inside them, Melissa! I have made them before as muscle relaxers, but never thought to add flowers. Adorable for Valentine's Day. I'm thinking: teachers' gifts!

    Have a great week and keep that shovel handy…I think we're going to need it again! :/

  • Such a fun, quick project!

  • Hi Melissa! Ugh, I think I re-shared last week's Trash to Treasure post without realizing I already shared! That's what I get for trying to do too many things at one time! Feel free to delete it if you need to.

    Thanks for the great party!

    • Thank you so much Robin for the invite. I would love to join you!

  • Those pocket warmers are so cute! Just adorable!

  • those are super cute. I have made owl hand warmers for my kids. Please consider sharing here:

  • I love the idea of using rice inside them, Melissa! I used to make neck warmers using whole corn and while they retained heat well, the whole house and I smell like a movie theater lobby after use! lol

    I'll be featuring your post on tomorrow's Clever Chicks Blog Hop. Feel free to grab my Featured button!
