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 :)
Whatever Fabric you are using for the article of clothing
Sewing machine to sew all the parts together
Step 1: Prepare the limb
This means remove any thick article of clothing leaving bare skin where you can
Step 2: Cover with Cling Wrap & Masking Tape
Then wrap the area with masking tape, be sure to make as few folds in the tape as possible. Try to use strips of tape that are not excessively long as this is the main cause for having to fold tape over. Dont wrap the tape around tightly as you may have it on for a few minutes and you dont want to cut off blood circulation, gently wrap tape around the area.
*NOTE* due to using cling wrap the limb you are working on may get quite sweaty... just warning you!
