Ombre Stripe Hand Warmer

As colder weather soon will descend upon us we prepare for chilly mornings waiting for the school bus, crisp afternoons tailgating at a sporty-spice game, and brisk evenings by the campfire. This craft will have your hands’ back (wait, what?) for all of those activities!

Here’s a simple sewing project video I put together for my friends over at Thirty-One Gifts, and inspired by their Ombre Stripe print, for a DIY handwarmer. Make one for your entire family to keep their hands warm, and your crafty heart happy!
