Well, British Summer Time has now officially ended, and it's dark o'clock at 5 in the evening. I don't much care for the dark winter nights, makes me feel very lazy and consume even more chocolate than I normally do!
However, I have been busy the last couple of weeks making stuff for the four Christmas craft fairs I'm doing this year. Three of them are at local nursery/primary schools, so with the little kiddies in mind, one of the things I've made are some cozy little microwavable handwarmers...
I used 100% cotton flannel, cut into 4" squares. I also cut two squares of lining material, stitched them all together, leaving a gap for turning. Filled with rice then handstitched up.
I've packaged them up and added a little instruction leaflet ...
When first heated the rice gives off a little moisture so I've already heated them three times in the microwave just to make sure they're all ok!
I'm linking to Handmade Monday, over at the Handmade Harbour blog for the first time.
Okay, that's me for now, my Cadbury's Fruit & Nut is calling! See you tomorrow with a card for the new Crafty Cardmakers challenge.
Thanks for popping in.
