Easy DIY Christmas present.. #3 :)

Ok so I know that I'm not really allowed to complain about what is called "winter" in southern california, but really, it does get a little cold. Especially my extremities. Here is a super easy tutorial on some reusable hand warmers.

Fabric (any on hand as long as its microwavable)
Essential oil (optional)

If you have essential oil (I used lavender) place the rice in a small ziplock bag and add few drops of the oil inside and shake it around. 
Then, sew a small square together (mine is about 4.5x 4.5), leave about a two inch opening to pour in the rice and sew together! I used pinking shears to cute-ify it. Okay, mostly so I don't have to worry about the seams at all. 

Pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds and the warmth should last about an hour. It would make great stocking stuffers and its totally reusable. Cut a bigger square and you can make feet warmers for those cold beds. Cut the fabric into different shapes for uber cuteness like hearts, animals, oh the possibilities are endless :)
