Rookie poster here!  Wink

So, I am looking to make a duct tape baseball glove for my nephew to use while playing wiffleball (I know, it's against the spirit of the game, but these kids play hard core! Cheesy).

I found a pattern - minus the webbing - online, which I will link to at the end of this post.  I also watched the "How It's Made" video on baseball gloves, and saw what they do is basically make an inner glove that they then paste and lace to the outer shell.

My basic planning involves adding some fiberfill or shredded paper to slight stiffness to the pinky and thumb, and maybe some to the other fingers (though less than the thumb/pinky) so the ball doesn't just push the material back and pop out of the glove.  I was originally going to make a 2 piece palm that I would add the fiberfill/paper to, then put the shell around that.  But after looking at the video, I'm wondering if I should add the inner glove, which would have the fiberfill/paper attached to it, then put that inside of the shell (I am assuming this might involve using some contact cement, which I already have).

Both methods involve using two different sizes of the pattern below.  

What would you do?

Thanks in advance!
