How to make Designer Gloves

23 Nov

Want to make an inexpensive but special gift for someone special this Christmas? Or would you like to have gloves that match your coat or other accessory? Then why not make these beautiful looking “designer” gloves? ūüėČ

What you need – – –

Gloves. You don’t actually make the gloves themselves, instead you either recycle an old pair or buy plain ones…plain ones because you are about to decorate them.

Embellishments. Fabric such as felt. Seed beads (tiny beads). Thread to either contrast or blend. Needle & thread for a little handsewing and fixing on of beads; and of course scissors.

Instructions – – –

Using pinking shears I cut round a template I’d made from a face cream jar, twice (one flower per glove); then, using a green felt, roughly cut out 4 leaf shapes (two leaves per flower).

Attach the leaves to the flowers and then embellish the flower itself with embroidery thread and seed beads.

Decide where you want to attach the flowers to the gloves, using pins. With a few stitches secure the flowers onto the gloves.

Now you have a pair of designer gloves ūüôā

I’d love to see the gloves you’ve made, I can add the photo/s and your blog link to this post.

– – – Have Fun! – – –

These I made for my mum.

    I love beads or buttons for embellishments. Can make such a difference and fun to do.

    It really does, Rosalie…all the difference and good fun. I like how you can use buttons for decoration and making jewellery – – – they needn’t be just for the usual buttonholes.
