Blanket – Gift Idea from Kids at Christmas

I love sentimental gifts like this personalized blanket sewing craft for the kids. Making homemade gifts from the kids, like DIY bath salts, moisture-rich bath bombs, or homemade ornaments for the Christmas tree like these salt dough ornaments are the best kind of gifts to give a loved one. Make a personalized Mitten Blanket for your loved ones this winter. It’s the perfect Christmas gift idea.

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • A cozy blanket or throw – I bought heated electric blankets for the grandparents to use on cold winter nights.
  • Felt material – enough for mittens from each child and a heart to go in the center
  • Yarn
  • Stitching needle with an eye big enough to thread the yarn

Instructions

  • Cut mittens (one for each child), and a heart out of felt.
  • Use yarn to stitch the kid’s names onto each mitten.
  • Then, stitch the kid’s mittens onto the blanket.

  • Finally, stitch the heart in the middle.
  • There you have it, a sweet gift for grandparents, teachers, or anyone who needs a cozy reminder of love for them

Variation

Make a Teacher Gift with a circle of mittens personalized with each child’s name. The heart in the center should show the year the kids had that teacher.

  • For a shortcut, instead of stitching the mittens on the blanket, use fabric glue and fabric paint to write names.
