Heart Gloves DIY


I really think this would would with any symmetrical shape, so I should really be titling this "meet together symmetrical shape glove DIY" but that sounds jumbled and confusing. I did one that will be perfect for Valentine's day with a heart and another that is just a little more wintry with a snowflake. Here's a really simple DIY for you to try out.


What you'll need
White Felt
Colored Knit Gloves (Mine were on clearance at Target for 75 cents for 2 pairs)
Scissors
Marker
Needle
White Thread


I made templates for the heart and snowflake for you! Go download the PDF here. Print those out (make sure scale to fit IS NOT checked) and cut them out.


Trace the shape onto the felt and cut it it out.


Fold the shape in half and cut.


Pin the shape to each side of the glove with maybe a pin or two.


Using a split stitch ( see info over here ), around the edge of the shape, sew the shape to the glove. You don't have to be perfectly pretty or tiny here! Split stitch is easy also! Make a bar stitch through, then, on the reverse side, make a bar stitch in reverse that comes up through the middle of the stitch you just made. Machines and perfectionists will do it smaller, I just do it to the best of my ability (or desire....I like speed here.)


Voila! Adorable little gloves.

  4. Great and easy tutorial! I will do it. Instead of felt you can try like this one, it seems more fluffy (http://picabela.com/inspiracja/1337) with the same templates. But I will do like you did :)
