Lots of people make lovely hammies. I buy some and make my no-sew ghetto ones. You can cut fleece into squares, put holes in the corners and stick metal shower hooks thru them. I have done this for placemats, etc.
If she will sew then she can make good flat hammies and work her way up to pocket hammies 2 layers of fleece sewn around 3 edges, turned inside out, then the last seam tucked under and sewn...i would guess...sewing machines hate my guts
