We love to have our kids dip their hands in paint to make those cute little hand prints. I thought it would be nice for my daughter and son-in-law to have a little hand of their child. Daddy could keep it in his pocket, wallet, backpack, or brief case when he was at work or away from his precious child. Mommy could keep this little keepsake in her purse, notebook, binder, bible, or wallet wherever she went.
I started out by a simple outline of the child's hand.
The hand print was cut from felt. (Two hands were cut). I hand stitched a small pink heart to the palm of the hand. Then the two hands were stitched together. You don't have to be proficient at sewing to make one.
This one I added the year to the heart.
One little hand for Mommy, and one little hand for Daddy. I made the hands for Valentine's Day gifts.
This is something that could be added to a baby book as a keepsake. Grandma would love to have one, too. This could be a great beginner sewing project for a grade school child or for a Girl Scout sewing badge.
These felt hands would be a simple gift to send to a mother or father who is in the military and has been deployed. Not too big, not too small. Just the right size. Your child's hand.
Enjoy your children now!
They grow up so very fast.
