Craft

Mothers’ Union members are great at making a range of craft items, such as knitted teddies, fiddle pinnies and prayer shawls. 

This section contains patterns and instructions for making some of our most popular items.

By using the downloadable approved knitting patterns and instructions, our handmade toys will meet the high safety standards required for a CE label to be attached. 

 

Knitted teddy bears

Mothers’ Union members and friends make knitted teddies with love and care for children facing all sorts of difficulties. 

Knitted sheep for travelling nativities

A popular activity for many Mothers' Union members is to knit cuddly sheep to be left with families once a travelling nativity has moved on.  

Knitted teddy hand puppets

These simple but fun puppets are easily knitted and, like the knitted teddies, can be given to children in a range of situations to cheer them up.
