Thought you might like to see what I did with a pair of cheap garden gloves... They were originally about 12-14 bucks. Can't remember for sure...

Here they are before I did anything to them... funky and stained from wearing them riding...


these are the funky little leather edgings that I took off of them  just before I took that pic above...


This is the denim I decided to use. It's the bottom of an old jacket... this jacket...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118331.0



I cut 2 equal pieces and pinned them on like the pic below...


Pinned them on like this...


And this is how they came out... It was a major pain sewing down inside there... My sleeve arm on my machine was too big to slide the glove over and sew...


I'm not big on working with leather. I love wearing it but not working with it... this was easier I think cause it was that cheap stuff... It sews just like regular fabric.

I wore them today for the first time and they are quite comfortable...

Nice idea.  They look good too.  I play around with denim and leather since my husband is a welder.   Not very machine friendly at times.  If you do anything else in the future with leather and denim, looking forward to seeing it.

I love the personality that the little touch of denim gave the gloves!

No you are right about the machine friendly part... for the most part you go slow... If I do anything else I'll be sure to post it... The jacket is the only other leather and denim I did... I have a pair of black leather chaps that are too short. I have been thinking of adding a section on the bottom of the legs in black denim.. cause they're great other than that.

Thanks You guys..

to spanarabica...

I have been working on another pair of gauntlet gloves. They are coming out really well. They are med/lite weight black leather. I took the gauntlets off and made new ones from some old black denim. They weren't big enough to cover the sleeves of my jacket cause they were so cheap. I went kinda crazy with different kinds of lace and some other cool stuff. So far all black... then disaster... my machine broke. I'm devastated. I'm never without it and I'm really  bummed. I did not finish my gloves and I'm going on a road trip Tues so I not only can't get the machine fixed till I get back I can't wear the gloves either... suuuks!

When I return and get it fixed I'll finish the gloves and post the pics... they are pretty awesome even now. I won't take pics cause I'm so pissed about it..  Sad

Hi Maxine Brandywine Here....

After a very long time away from Craftsters I'm feeling great to be back. Couldn't get in on my old user and pass so I had to set up a whole new profile.

Been wearing these gloves off and on for 10 years and I'm anxious to share images of what they like now. But due to IMO ridiculous constraints, I can't post any pics till I've posted 10 times!

Anyway... great to be back here
Maxine
