I have been attempting to make these since last night and am having such issues with the thumbs, I cant seem to get them attached without the being puffy/bunched up. Anybody have any tips!?

The worth of a rider is not measured by the times they fall but by the times they get back on.

aww I love you guys!

craftster has helped me soooo much with inspiration and crafting-im glad i can give a little back.

When i'm on here my little 5-yr old sis comes in and says "you're on that site again?!"
(she cant appreciate a website w/out games lol) Roll Eyes

also for the loop-string thing I suggest something stretchy and to sew them in well after all. Tying didnt work well for me after all. Maybe i should go in and change that  Lips sealed

So I made a pair of these yesterday and kinda winged it... read the tutorial, but then put the itunes on and ignored the computer in favor of the sewing machine  Tongue  So I thought jamming that little thumb seam under the presser foot looked too hard, so I made it all one piece and built the thumb in.  Uhh... that's hard to explain.  I did the "sew it all in one long tube, put it on, and pin it to fit" part, but I only fitted it up to about where my thumb attaches to my hand, then angled back out to the existing seam.  Sewed that.  Then I trimmed off the excess and put it back on.  I spread my hand so my thumb was lined up with the "angled" part of the seam, and pinned on the other side of my thumb and around the top.  I sewed from the seam around the thumb-pins down into where my thumb-pit would be (gotta love the technical terminology), made a rounded curve, then stitched close to that seam on the finger-side back out... so I could cut the thumb free from the rest of the hand to test it out, but didn't have to commit to anything with the rest of the fingers yet.  The stitching after the thumb-pit was really just kind of placeholder-ish, I ended cutting that part of the fleece away because that's not where the final seam for the rest of the hand ended up.

Um... I'll see if I can clarify that with pictures here in a minute...
