|CREATE|owl hand warmer

This isn't really a tutorial for how to make an owl hand warmer, I just wanted to show you this hand warmer which I made for T, with a cold spell approaching I thought it would be nice to have a little hand warmer in each pocket to keep him warm!

This can be made using any small felt pattern really, I created this owl by taking bits from various owls on pinterest (and I think his ears are too big!)

My owl is the same size as the robin decoration I made at Christmas which you can find here, you could use the robin pattern to make this too!
 I filled him up with pearl barley, but I'm seen that you can use beans or rice too.  Once you have your design, sew up your character leaving a small gap to add your filling.
They need 40 seconds in the microwave to get nicely warm and not too hot for little hands.
This is T's 'I don't want a photo for your blog Mummy' face!
And this is him giving us a demo of putting the hand warmer in his pocket - after he'd been bribed with chocolate!

These would make really cute gifts too, I'm thinking about making some for gifts for next Christmas.  I think they'd also be good for when you come in from the snow as a super quick way to warm up!
