Forget Me Knot Mittens- Holding Hand Mittens

$3,162

"They hold your hand for only a little while but  your heart for a lifetime."

I am the mom of two adorable but very busy little girls, raising our family in the Windy City of Chicago, Illinois. I cannot count how many times we’d be running to the store and realize we had forgotten to bring the girls mittens (or even worse we had lost one). That’s when it hit me! Why not connect their mittens to mine somehow? We all know moms do not lose their mittens. So I called a friend that knits, I drew her a picture and my idea came to life. Are you ready for cuteness overload? You put on the mittens as you normally would and then when your little munchkin gets chilly, they can slip their hand in the attached child's mitten and are surrounded by warmth. People would literally stop me in the street asking me where I had gotten them every time we wore them. That’s when I knew we were onto something and Forget Me Knot Mittens were born.

I spent the next 6 months and a dozen prototypes later working with manufacturers perfecting the perfect mitten. They are as practical as they are charming. These mittens are well constructed of 80% blended wool/ 20% nylon, making them washable. Last winter I had 500 pairs made and they were a big success. Now we have the opportunity to get a foot in with a MAJOR retailer, providing we can come to market with a line of three or more colors. I'd also like to bundle the mittens with a small pair of matching cream ones for the children's other hands. This is why we need your investment. To take Forget Me Knot Mittens to the next level we need your help. To meet the manufacturers minimums in multiple colors is costly. Kickstarters, every penny counts!

In the past year I have been selling these mittens, we have heard one comment consistently. They would stop and say, "I would pay YOU to make him hold my hand again." People are in love with this product because it truly is such a short time we have with our children. Have you ever heard the phrase, “They hold your hand for only a little while, but your heart for a lifetime.” Forget Me Knots are a time capsule in a mitten, reminding us to take a moment, walk slower and hold tighter. Thank you for taking our hand on this adventure!

Risks and challenges

We understand that issues come up when having a product manufactured. But with a seasonal product, you have to minimize the chance for issues to be successful. We are trying to do just that by working with two separate manufacturers, in case we need a back up. We are also working with a reputable company centrally located in the midwest to warehouse, manage inventory and conduct all shipping processes at the moment our online business booms or we land a retail player, whichever comes first.
