Helping Hand Handmade Gift
Begin by pouring the fabric pain onto a paper plate (or another flat surface). Then rub the little hand you will be using on the mitt around the plate of paint. Continue to rub the hand until it is completely covered with a layer of paint.
Firmly press the painted hand down onto the mitt then hold the mitt down and carefully lift the little hand off of the oven mitt to avoid smearing the paint. (The hand and mitt will stick a little when separating.
Allow time for the hand print to dry then (if desired) use a fabric marker to write a message (and/or name & date) on the oven mitt. Wait until the writing has dried completely before sharing your helping hand mitt.
