1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Random Question [fabric for hand warmers] on: October 22, 2014 04:21:26 PM
Hmm, I think it would work okay but it might not transmit the heat as well as flannel or something that's a little bit thinner. I made some hand warmers with a canvas material once and they didn't feel as warm as others I had made with flannel or fleece. That could have been my imagination though Smiley. I didn't do any scientific tests Wink.

I was googling and several blogs said to make sure not to use polyester fleece because it could melt. My Joanns doesn't have fleece that's 100% cotton so I guess I'll use the flannel since it's 100% cotton and won't melt. Smiley

Hey guys,
I have a random craft question. I'm making hand warmers for Christmas gifts (the kind you microwave and stick in your pockets), and I know you can make them with flannel but I was wondering if I can make them with jean material. I have some old jeans lying around. I'm going to fill them with rice. So do you guys think jeans will hold the heat? Thanks!  Smiley If not I can always make a trip to Joann's and pick up some fleece. I was just trying to keep it eco friendly.

I wasn't sure if this should go under Home Sweet Home or somewhere else so I decided to put it here. I made this over July 4th weekend with my new sewing machine.  Grin I had a bunch of t-shirts that were not really wearable anymore and a fleece blanket that needed a new lease on life. So here is what I wound up with. I'm pretty proud of it! Sorry it's blurry. LOL I'll get some better pictures soon.

Hi,
I have a question about the pipecleaners in the fingers. How do you guys go about that? Is there a way to keep them from moving around? I'm attempting to do fingers this time around. Thanks.  Smiley
