I live in California, to me anything below 60 degrees is cold. I love wearing gloves to keep my hands warm at school, but it's hard to write or do anything else while wearing gloves. I decided I needed some fingerless gloves. The other day I found over a yard of blue faux fur at the thrift store for $3, perfect.
I can still put my hands in my pockets, one of my hobbies.
Proof that there are two of them.
My sister laughed but then admitted that she wants a pair. I'll debut them at school tomorrow and see what type of reaction they receive. I doubt people will be very surprised as the gloves match my hair, and my shoes.
Each glove is essentially just a rectangle of fabric twice the width of the widest part of my hand, folded in half and sewn up leaving a slit for the thumb, then hemmed at the top and bottom. I didn't make them too form-fitted because the fabric isn't stretchy so they would end up not fitting over my hand. They shed a bit as I didn't finish off the edges very well, but that just adds to the charm. I'd like to make a pair lined in this green satin that I have, but in my experience satin and fur are some of the most difficult fabrics to work with.
