Hey, This is my first post on the site. This is a project I did a little over a year ago as a christmas present for my boyfriend.

I call it Mr./Ms. Glove. I've made/making a few [including the one as my profile picture...its suppose to be what I'd look like if I were a glove-person]. The hair is made of felt, the glasses I 'borrowed' off a Dollarama Santa decoration, the buttons were from my gram's button collection I inherited, and the central lining that I used between the glove material was given to me from my boyfriend, so I only thought it was suiting to use it for his gift. The x stitching mouth is suppose to be representative of my boyfriend's dour expressions [I usually make the mouth as a straight line stitch].

The shoulder bag was recycled from a dear old high school canvas bag I had, but fell apart.

The Mini Mac iBook laptop was constructed from my moms old cover girl blush case, which I hand and spray painted.

The guitar was hand painted and is a replica of my boyfriends Fender Jaguar

And the little bottle was  and old Barbie soda pop bottle that was in my toy box, which I labeled with his favorite pop Irn-Bru

I hope this offers ideas for future glove projects to some of you. Smiley
