The photograph above shows a small pillow I made for my best friend.
I made this with 2 rectangle shapes of red fleece. I decorated one of the pieces with hand stitches. I then put both pieces of fleece together and blanket stitched all the way around leaving a small space. I filled this pillow with some wadding and then closed up the gap with some more sewing. I think my friend really liked her gift.

The photograph above is of a pocket warmer I actually made. I made this from pink fleece. I cut out 2 heart shaped pieces and then hand sewed them together, leaving a small gap. I filled this with rice and then closed the gap.
These are put into the microwave just before leaving the house. It is best to make 2 of these, I put these in my coat pockets in the morning. When I am on my way to school on a cold morning I can warm my hands up in my pockets. These are really so easy to make.
