Make Patterned Hand Warmers That Double As Ice Packs

We could all use a few of these.

Sometimes, living in a city with cold winters can be a downer. There are just those days when all you want is to stay cozied up under a warm blanket and completely avoid leaving the house. But thanks to today's Craft Of The Day from Bee In My Bonnet, venturing out into the cold won't seem as daunting.

After throwing these hot bags in the microwave for 30 seconds, you'll have the perfect pair of handwarmers. Simply stick them in your pocket to bring the warmth along with you. However, these bags are not limited to winter use. Keep a few in your freezer, and you'll have some handy ice packs to help ease any bumps or bruises.
