In this instructable I will show you how to make fabric patterns for any article of clothing you can think of! (this method can also be used to make armor patterns for any cos-players out there).

In the photos you will see me make templates for convertible fingerless mittens! I will add the download link for the template at the end :)

Materials required:
Cling wrap
Masking tape
Whatever Fabric you are using for the article of clothing
Sewing machine to sew all the parts together

Step 1: Prepare the limb

For the first step, prepare the part of your body that you will be making templates for.
This means remove any thick article of clothing leaving bare skin where you can
Having trouble downloading the file

<p>because the tutorial is really meant to show how to make the templates for your own custom pair rather than sewing my pattern together, I didnt take any photos of the sewing process sorry :( what you can do is you can pin it together the way you think it goes together to check before actually sewing it! What I can easily tell you is that you will want to sew the small thumb piece and the finger sections on first! Thats a mistake I made and had to unpick and re sew :P</p>
Could you provide some instructions on how to sew it together?
<p>Nice instructable!</p>
very nice and useful instructable.
