Upcycled Sweater Heart Hand Warmers Tutorial

Sometimes I get these overly ambitious ideas and that is as far as they go. Just big ideas. Sometimes, a year or so later, I actually act on them.

I made some sweater pillows (some are still not finished, so I will blog about them eventually) and I have…
