DIY: Heating Pads & Hand Warmers

Working all day puts a lot of strain on your body, especially when your out in the cold or lifting heavy objects. I’m assuming a lot of us reach for the heating pad when we get home. Instead of spending money on heating pads you have to plug in and keep purchasing because they stop working, make your own with those shirts you have laying around that don’t fit anymore. You can also make some hand warmers to take with you on the go!

They are easy, cheap and quick. All you need is some fabric, rice and someone that can sew!

 

For the Heating Pad:

  1.  Find an old shirt, thin blanket or sheet (Flannels work great)
  2. Cut into two equal size squares (as large as you want your heating pad to be)
  3. Place one square on top of the other
  4. Sew along three sides and leave one longer side open (denoted by black lines below)

5. Divide into segments as large as you would like and sew across (denoted by thin black lines below)

6. Fill each segment with rice

7. Sew last side shut

For the hand warmers (similar to the heating pad but smaller):

  1. Find an old shirt, thin blanket or sheet (Flannels work great)
  2. Cut two 5″ x 5″ squares (or 4″ x 4″)
  3. Place one square on top of the other
  4. Sew three sides shut
  5. Fill with rice
  6. Sew last side shut
