So here is the tutorial for a little mini rice pack to keep your hands toasty as you go out and about this holiday season! (ps. did you notice my header is a bit more festive now?!). Hello Fall!
Here you can see the pattern pieces (if you readers want I can scan in the pattern - just leave a note). I put the measuring tape in there so you can get an idea of size.
Stitch on your embroider if you want first. I wanted to write "hand toasty" on so it was clear what these are since these will be Christmas gift add ons. (My embroidery is nothing to write home about - but I think it still adds a little something)
Next stitch the jam piece onto the front toast piece.
Now put the back pieces on top of the front (right sides together). You could do this project out of cotton but then you would have to do a double hem on the back pieces.
Pin the pieces on and stitch all round
To make the rice pouch cut two pieces 3"x 3.5" approximately.
Stitch all around leaving a hole for turning and filling with rice.
Once you have put your rice in stitch the opening closed (I did a simple whip stitch - I think that's what it is called)
And there ya go! Hand toasty is complete and ready to go into stockings for Christmas or into your pockets to help you stay warm as you Christmas shop, or go tobogganing, etc.
& thanks for stopping by!
