Snowflake Hand Warmers

Linda at Amuse Studio made these adorable hand warmers using our felt.  
These are a quick and easy gift to make and will give the recipient the gift of warm hands all winter long. Here's a quick and easy tutorial for you. 
Supplies you'll need:
  • Red Amuse Studio felt (a|s felt has 35% felt content and is ok for the microwave!)
  • White Amuse Studio felt
  • Scallop circle die (or plain)
  • Snowflake Trio 2 die set
  • Heat 'n bond
  • Needle & red thread
  • Flax seed (or rice)
Step 1 - cut out two matching circles using red felt
Step 2 - iron heat 'n bond onto white felt, die cut one snowflake (Linda used the largest snowflake die in the set)
Step 3 - Iron the snowflake onto one of the red circles
Step 4 - Hand stitch around the edge of the circle, leaving a 2" opening.  Be sure your stitches are close enough so that the flax seed won't fall through!
Step 5 - Fill the handwarmer with flax seed (or rice or a mixture of rice and flax seed)
Tip: Your handwarmers will smell lovely if you add some dried lavender!
Step 6 - Handstitch the opening
That's it!  Easy peasy!  Pop them in the microwave for 30-45 seconds (depends on the strength of your microwave and how hot you like them!)
