Mittens for Grammy

Last year we made handprint mittens.

This year we're making some for Grammy's tree!

To make them, you'll only need....


  1. Isn't it funny how things so simple can be so cute? I think I'll dig out the felt, embroidery floss and sequins and set my 5 and my 10 to work.

  2. Very cute! We have some felt scraps from making felt food, and this would be a great project for my 7-year-old.

  3. Holly and Shauna - thanks for your comments and kind words!
    We enjoyed this project, and even though we made ours just last year, I still marvel at how small and babyish they are!
    I hope my mother will love them.

  4. What a great idea. I could also imagine them as little advent mittens with treats inside (instead of stuffed).

  5. Thanks for this idea! I made it with my daughter's preschool class (17 three-year-olds), and they all just loved it. I strung some little jingle bells onto the yarn while connecting the mittens together (snipped small holes into the corned of each mitten so I could lace the yarn through easily with a needle) to make it even more festive. Thanks again, and happy holidays!


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
