Gloves will never go out of style. And who cares if they do. I purchased this pair just yesterday at a local thrift for $1.50. I really was in need since my cotton pair was not holding up to the cold. Besides, I hate cold hands.
With a few fur pieces I found at my grandmother’s, and a pair of scissors, I whipped these bad boys up and loved the results.
I sure hope you attempt this one. Even without the fur, these are versatile and super easy.
You will need:
Leather gloves (I found mine at a thrift for $1.50. Just make sure yours fit snug.)
Leather glue (Although I’m sure superglue or hot glue will work.)
Needle and thread if you decide to add fur
Optional: Fur (I found a few random pieces at my Great Grandmothers. Not sure if it’s real, but I used it.)
Here are the gloves I began with.
And here is my little doodle. This time, for some reason, I felt I needed a doodle.
Step 1. Trace the half circle onto the tops of the gloves. I used a pencil to do this.
Step 2. I removed the strap and cut out my half circles. PLEASE NOTE, I did not cut on the line, instead I left about a quarter of an inch from the outline so that I could fold the quarter inch under. This gives a more finished look. I used leather glue to keep everything in place. Feel free to cut along your outline if you want a more jagged look.
Step 3. I folded the tops of the gloves down to make them a little shorter. I then stitched the fur around the wrist.
Step 4. And that’s all. Repeat process with other glove.
What say you?
What a cute idea! Also, love the blazer from Anthropologie. I have the same one and could not believe that it was 50% off! That almost never happens at Anthropologie.
Thank you Tamisha. The blazer was a gift and I wear it all the time.
I love leather and it pained me to see a nice pair of gloves cut, Ouch! But the results are very nice.
Hi Olivia. I didn’t meant to hit a nerve. :-) They were definitely nice before. Thank you for commenting!
Love it Whitney! Fur makes it chic!
Thank you mommy!
These are awesome. T’is all. How are they faring in the cold weather?
Hi Ari! The cold weather is scared of these bad boys. Haha.
