The ca-ute hand-warmers and headband pictured above are the work of three sisters who call themselves “A Few Good Bananas.” The sisters make hats, headbands, hand-warmers, and gloves, with a combination of recycled and new materials and intricately handmade adornments. Their combination of boiled wool, cashmere, and other materials makes their products warm and lightweight. “We are passionate about our creations. We have taken extreme care to give every item its own unique personality, making sure that no two pieces are alike.”

From their website:

About Us
A Few Good Bananas is the creative child born to three sisters who value family, friendship, and community. Our family taught us very early on that it was more important to have active and creative minds than money. Our mom was one of the original up-cyclers. She found innovative ways to use thrift-shop finds or items that outlived their original purpose and passed that trait on to each of us. Our father used to say “never buy green bananas because life is short, and you never know if you will be around long enough for them to ripen.” After our dad passed away, our mom always put “a few good bananas” on her shopping list. Our friends, family, and customers tell us that when they shop, they think fondly of how A Few Good Bananas originated. We consider ourselves instrumental in the lack of good bananas at our local grocery store.”

We each bring our unique and whimsical senses to every design decision.

  14. june deese says:

    Banana sandwich….banana with peanut butter on bread…yumm

  17. Cindi Johnson says:

    I have a calorie-free (ahem, really – no! I mean Really!) recipe for banana bread that is rich with butter, bananas and a good swig of rum that could be my favorite way to eat bananas. Still, bananas on a bowl of Cheerios just can’t be beat.

    Good luck for your creations!

  31. The ONLY way to eat bananas is in banana bread ! that’s my vote. And if i don’t win I will just have to ” cook up” some of my secret stash of wool sweaters saved just for boiling and make my own. Patterned Fair Isle sweaters make the best boiled woolens.

  32. linda b. says:

    With chocolate covered pretzels….perfect way to eat a banana!

  33. paula t says:

    One delicious way to enjoy bananas is topped on a peanut butter covered rice cake YUM!

  34. Rebecca Taylor says:

    Hum…well I think my favorite way to eat a banana would be to slice it up and eat it on an ice cream Sunday with raspberry sorbet and honey.

  35. Patty W says:

    I love sliced bananas on my peanut butter sandwiches.

  36. i heart salt says:

  37. Cheryl Corpstein says:

    As banana jam, using my grandma’s recipe

  38. Iris Foster says:

    BANANA PUDDING!!!!! That is how my family likes their banana’s. Real banana pudding not from pudding mix. 2 cups sugar, 4 cups milk,2 heaping T. spoons flour, 6 eggs yokes, T. spoon vanilla, 1 stick butter. Box of vanilla wafers. Nothing fattening about that. Your hand warmers are precious!!!

  39. Betty Thompson says:

    Those good hand warmers look great. Keep up the good woman’s work!

  40. Sandie Weinrauch says:

    I love a peanut butter, honey and banana sandwich on fresh homemade multigrain bread!!!!

  41. Catherine Vande Braak says:

    I like my bananas when the peel is still on the green side. A little peanut butter to go along with it makes it perfect:)

  42. beki hancox says:

    I have, because of “belly” issues started to eat more whole grains, fresh fruit, and veggies, etc.
    I have created a Pitalicious- Peanutbutter- Sammie. I love it!
    Cut a whole wheat (read the labels) pita in half. Take a tiny bowl, and mix the following: bit of peanutbutter and local honey.
    Next, add raisins, small sliced apples, and few pecans. Put into pita, top with lots of sliced banannas
    and finally sprinkle with cinnamon and a bit of real maple syrup.
    I love this sandwich, and it tastes great.
    This is my creative use of banannas, and I so hope to win the gloves.

  43. Rita Bowen says:

    Love bananas frozen and straight out of the Yonana machine. Tastes just like soft serve ice-cream.

  44. Ginger Booth says:

    I eat bananas almost anyway you can name. But one of my favorites is sliced long ways between 2 toasted frozen waffles and sprinkled with cinnamon. Sometimes I sprinkle a few sunflower seeds for protein.
    Love these hand warmers and the creativity of the sisters at A Few Good Bananas!

  45. Winnie Nielsen says:

    Wow, somehow I missed this post. Those hand warmers are too cute and practical too. Congratulations Patty W !! These are going to arrive just in time for the next round of Arctic Air for this November!!
