That should work. I remember having mine tied to a shoelace as a kid.

I ran a piece of yarn through dd's coat one year & tied it to each glove. It worked better than the clips.

Do you have a grandmother or anyone that can knit?  My grandmother knitted my son the cutest mittens and they were attached by a long string that goes behind thier back to help keep thier mittens from getting lost :).

But you may want to try Freecycle.  People give away a lot of kids clothes on there :).  Hopefully someone will give away some things that you can use for your family :).
