Cut two 4-inch-by-4-inch squares of flannel. Turning the two outside portions of fabric toward each other, sew three of the sides together with a straight stitch. Sew all but an inch or two of the fourth side and turn the bag right side out again.
For oil-scented rice, mix approximately one teaspoon of oil to a pound of rice in a jar and shake together until the rice is coated. Set aside.
For herb-scented rice, mix one pound of rice with approximately three tablespoons of dried herbs (i.e. lavender, rosemary, etc.). Mix together well and set aside.
If you want unscented rice, simply measure out the approximate amount you will need and set aside.
Using a small funnel, pour rice into the bag until it is three-quarters full.
Carefully turn the remaining open edges in on the bag and sew them shut. Check the perimeter of the bag to make sure that there are no openings for rice grains to get through.
Place the bag in the microwave and run it on medium high for 2 minutes. Put your new hand warmer into your pocket. It should stay hot for about 30 minutes.
