Today I am going to share with you a pattern hack that I did on Violette Field Threads Forest Friends Pocket Set. While this pattern was designed to add sweet little forest friends as pockets on your children's clothing, I decided to use the pockets for something else...hand warmers! Read on to learn how to complete this hack for yourself. They would make for excellent handmade Christmas gifts!

Lightweight Fusible Interfacing
Trims - such a buttons, ribbon, or lace
Basic Sewing Tools
Hand Warmers: I followed V & Co tutorial here
I love to mix & match fabrics. Here are the combos that I choose to use
- Animal Head: Cut (2) from the woven main fabric and (2) from the flannel fabric - making sure that you cut as mirror images so that you can pair a main fabric piece to a flannel piece.
- Face: Cut 1 of the main fabric and 1 of interfacing
- Accents: Cut 1 of the main fabric and 1 of interfacing of each of the detail pieces (ie the eyes, nose, ears, etc.)
- You can cut additional layers for more texture and detail if you desire
***The cover will NOT go in the micro-wave so there is no concern about types of trims you use***
Once you have completed your face details you need stitch this main woven piece right-sides together to the matching flannel piece ONLY ALONG THE BOTTOM EDGE.
