I made these:







from the free downloadable pattern "yoshimi" http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns?sortby=mostrecent&page=3&filter=102
It's an easy pattern, but I recommend to first sew the thumb hem and then close the seam, because the other way is almost impossible unless you have a special tootsy (Hmmm? I just translated it from German "Fchen") for your sewing machine

I had some very old brass half beads left, from times when they didnt have rivets for adornment, but only for the Eiffeltower and so I embroidered love/hate on the knuckles and a little anchor on the wrist because for a long, long time I wanted to have those tattoos (I am over that now). Actually I was wrong, love should've been on the left, hate right, but when I noticed, love was already done and I didnt want to cut it all off again. The O of love looks crooked, but isnt. Anyway, I like them. Do you?

Fchen on a sewing machine is just a "foot" or maybe a "special foot" or a "[...] foot" for doing a certain task.

"footsy" has different meanings... http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Footsie

anyway... i like your gloves a lot!  (^_^)
sehr schoen.

I'm guessing that a Fchen would be a "little foot", but I don't know anything about sewing machines, so they might not actually exist.

Actually, I thought of the first definition here: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=tootsie  

Interesting what translating software comes up with sometimes.  Smiley Someone somewhere should compile a list of common craft terms in different languages so it's easy to come up with the right term.  

 Neat armwarmers!

Well, if there was a place on craftster for a crafty dictionary, I'd definitly help to put it up and use it.
And thanks for your nice comments.

well, after being here for some time you will find it easier to use the english expressions than the german ones. happens to me quite often that I am at a german craft/fabric supply store and ask the attendant something like "Ich brauche hhhh hhhh hm wie heit das... fusible interfacing und hhhh velcro?" or something alike. Wink
I learned sewing by using craftster.org so I often don't even know the german expressions. need to learn sometime, though...

(I think we could just open a dictionary thread in the "Germany" area, don't you? Maybe ask a mod to pin it?)
