Ok so I walked into poseur paradise or Hot Topic, as most people call it. Looking amongst the rack of clothing i spotted a pair of fingerless gloves that said "loveless" across the knuckles. I looked at the price and wasn't very happy to find them to be fourteen dollars. I mean thats more than what a pay for lunch for a week. I decided to make my own since I saw one of my friends googling them. I made his boyfriend a pair too. I hope the second one doesn't offend anyone. My friend's bf is gay and jewish so we call him gayjew as a loving term of endearment and he likes it so it stuck. It cost me less then six dollars to make these 2 pairs. I don't know how to post images in the post so i'll just link you guys up.

Ok so first you buy a pair of gloves, I got mine for a dollar at AC Moore. Just plain ones or colored ones if you want. I know you can get them cheaper when they're on sale though.

Next you put them on and measure up to the middle joint in your fingers. Cut off top part thats over that joint. If you're making them for someone else, make sure you leave some more room if they have longer fingers. You can always make small cuts until the finger is the desired length.

Then you choose your design. I liked the whole writing on the knuckle things so i measured it so the writing would fall right between the first two joints in your finger when worn. (forgot what the name of that is meh) You can also draw on the hand part too. I just used puff paint as it was an easy inexpensive way.

I freehanded mine but you can easily use a stencil if you want. Also make sure no strings are hanging out like some are on my gloves. (I fixed them a little after seeing the pictures)

I safety pinned them together made a little homemade card tag thing on a string and tied it to the safety pin. They're currently sitting on my dresser awaiting the last day of school to be handed out. I plan on making more for some of my friends i know that would like them.

Hope I helped out a little with my added on tutorial!
