Gramma's Little Shop
Gramma's Little Shop started when I began making things for my 2 grandchildren Malin and Parker. At the time, I sold completed items and over time I found that I really enjoyed making up the patterns so that's where I am today. My patterns are not computer drafted but hand drawn and require varying amounts of skill from basic beginner to a little more complex. If you can handle an iron, a pair of scissor and a glue gun you can make these. WHY FELT BOARDS? Felt play expands the imagination! Children will create characters, storylines, conflicts, etc. Telling a story using felt uses multiple senses. Felt boards assist with fine motor skills, social skills, memorization, independence, and language development.
The Mitten Felt Story Pattern
Pattern for “The Mitten” by Jan Brett for use on a felt or flannel board.
PATTERNS ONLY – NOT A COMPLETED ITEM
These are hand drawn not computer drafted patterns to make felt cutouts to be used on a felt or flannel board. They are designed to be used as a supplement when reading “The Mitten” by Jan Brett
Why a felt board?
* Using felt pieces to retell stories gives children a visual reminder of what they heard.
* Tactile: Involves the senses – textures, sounds, colors, shapes
* Fine Motor: Hand-eye coordination and manipulation
* Auditory: Listening and hearing
* Creativity: Imagination, make-believe, music, and drama
* Language: Speaking and listening, vocabulary and reading skills

FREEZER PAPER: I use freezer paper to print and cut my patterns. It is the secret to cutting small precise pieces! Freezer paper is available as a roll in grocery stores and can be cut into 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheets to print on or you can purchase precut sheets. My patterns are not intended to be cut on Cricut or Silhouette machines.
I have also included basic instructions on making a felt board with this pattern.
PLEASE NOTE: PATTERNS ARE INSTANT DOWNLOADS AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.

A little about me. My name is Kathy and I have been married to my hubby Paul for 47 years. Where has the time gone? We have 3 children – Steve, Ryan and Holly – and one wonderful son-in-law Dustin. I am a grandma to Malin and Parker and they keep me on my toes. Besides my family and my shop I enjoy traveling, photography, and reading.
