Hello everyone!  This is my instructable on how to make yourself a brand new set of working gloves for around the house, garden, or farm.  I had some extra buckskin to work with so I used that.  Buckskin can be hard to find (not hard to make though!) so obviously this whole process could be done with leather from the store or any other fabric material you have laying around. 

I'm not much of a sewer/stitcher so this was a bit of a journey for me.  I would like to give a big shout out to Icetirgris for her instructable  http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Gloves/  it really helped me get some ideas on how to start.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials Needed:
Buckskin Material or something similar
Duct Tape
rubber surgical gloves
Heavy Thread

Tools Needed:
Speed Stitcher or sewing machine
piece of wood or something else you can poke.... in this case I used an old cook book.
This is great. So simple but very effective. The way of marking the right size with tape can be used for many things. I'm working on a leather armor, and want to have a perfect fit. I will try to us the same way you do it here. <br>Thanks for sharing the idea. <br>/Thomas
Loved the instructable, wish I had your talent.
