Fingerless Gloves Craft Tip


Made from an upcycled sweater, these fingerless gloves are almost finished! I can left them black, but I am going to decorate these with wool circles. so far this sweater has provided me with wrist cuffs and now these! Oh and the main sweater now has short sleeves, and which was once a woman's medium, fits a 4 year old! How cute?!


First you'll begin with your wool sweater - wash it, dry it, basically shrink it (felt it).Next grab your sharpest scissors for a nice clean cut.




This is what you'll have to cut.  







Then  cut a circle in the side about one inch down - this is for your thumb.
Now these are ready to decorate. I am going to add wool circles, like the ones I added to the felted sweater and to my wrist cuffs. So you can leave them as is, or add to them! I'll post the finished product later!
