This is my paisley fabric I'm intending to use this month, I have a few strips approx 10" x 30". It is polyester and has a slight stretch to it.


This is what I'm attempting to make - GLOVES  Smiley

I struggle to knit gloves and don't like how bulky crochet ones turn out so I thought I would try sewing a pair. I bought the pattern originally for the hats and I am psyching myself up to make the gloves. I don't know why I am so daunted by the prospect, its not like I lose anything but time if they don't work out  Roll Eyes

K-Star--what lovely fabric!  are the gloves lined?   I would never have thought to sew gloves, but why not!  I imagine turning the fingers could be the hardest part, but a chopstick would help that!

I'm making the first pair unlined, I don't want to cause myself more trouble than I need  Wink The difficult part (I think) will be sewing the gussets between the fingers although since I started making dolls I'm better at those tight turns and narrow margins  Grin

Floppy ears on the hat are cute!

Kookaloo - For some reason, it would have never occurred to me to sew gloves, but what a fun project to try - and like you said - if they don't turn out, you lost some time and a small bit of fabric, thats it

It only occurred to me after I'd bought the McCalls hat pattern  Cheesy yet I own sewn gloves in velour and fleece and some slinky ones I bought for a burlesque outfit  Smiley

Paisley gloves = Brilliant!  And even if you lose a little time and fabric, you gain experience.
