Make DIY hand warmers as a quick gift
Hey y’all, today I’m sharing how to make hand warmers. Sewing handwarmers is a project perfect for gifting as well as quick and inexpensive to make. And you can use fabric scraps for this DIY gift!
You can make these on the machine or by hand sewing. While I show the machine stitched option in the video below, you can use a backstitch and a hand needle to get the same look without a machine.
Check out the video below or on YouTube here to see how to sew hand warmers.

To make hand warmers you’ll need:
- cotton fabric scraps*
- cotton thread*
- the pattern (see below for details)
- Pinking shears (affiliate link)
*Note that 100% cotton fabric and thread is recommended because you use a microwave to heat these. Polyester thread or polyester in fabric could melt. Use caution and common sense and don’t leave these unattended in the microwave.
