Let’s Make A Thing Really Quickly – Oven Mitt Heating Pad

As fall continues to march on the temperature keeps dropping, and I turn into a shivery Victorian Orphan. Wheatley seems to be similar to her mum in that respect so the other day I whipped up these microwaveable heating pads.

These are cute, incredibly simple to make and can be used to soothe cramps, heat up beds or warm extremities in a snap!

An Oven Mitt

STEP ONE

Fill the mitt with rice up to an inch below the opening at the wrist, finish off by stitching it closed. I used a catch stitch to close mine up.

To use your heating pad, throw it in the microwave in one minute “bursts” until you figure out how long it takes for it to heat up.

These projects are great, within minutes you have a physical, functional “thing” and a great sense of accomplishment.

Enjoy the toasty warmness!
