Introduction: Make Gloves for Yourself

In this instructable I will show you you how to make a pair of gloves, these gloves can be used for just about anything, they can also be used as glove liners!

You will need:

Spandex (or some other stretchy material)

Marker

Scissors

Sewing machine (you could hand sew these but it would take a while)



Step 1: Getting the Right Size

First, lay out two layers of the fabric you are going to use, I used the sleeve of an old under armor shirt. Then, trace your hand with a marker onto the fabric (If your fabric is black then you may want to use a red or silver marker so it will show up).

Step 2: Sewing the Glove

Now once you've traced your hand sew along the lines, Then see if your glove fits, you may have to make a few adjustments see the pictures for more.

Step 3: Cutting Out Your Gloves

Now just cut out the webbing, leave about 1/8 in. of fabric so the seems don't come undone. Next, turn your glove inside out, Then you're finished! (except you need to make one more glove)

Step 4: The Finished Product

Here are some pictures of what the glove (should) look like. Enjoy!

This site gives many nice things to try... I just want to sew a glove to use after parking in and the steering wheel is too hot to touch. It is very interesting to know what I could make to pass the time.. Thanks for creating "Instructables"!

Just stumbled on this site. Haven't look too deep into it though. http://www.glove.org/default.php It has some patterns intended for leather, but may not be the style your looking for.

This looks really good. I'm modifying a Captain America costume and I will definitely use this for the gloves. Thanks, man!

This totally saved my project! I tried to make some gloves from an actual glove pattern, it went horribly wrong. Thank you so much for this instructable!

You could make 4 gloves (2 for each hand) but keep one pair just cut (not turned inside out). Then pull the other pair (turned inside out like done in the instructable) on over the other ones and attach them to each other. This way, there wouldnt be a seam on the inside.

Great instructable btw

What sort of thread did you use? Just normal thread or anything with a little stretch to it? :-D Can I use cotton thread?

 very nice :) very professional looking gloves too :) would you recommend any changes for making these out of non-stretchy material?

You have to draft fourchettes and a thumb piece for anything other than spandex. I've used this pattern before for fabric gloves: http://www.glove.org/modern.php

Very cool idea!!  This is a great idea for formal ladies gloves that you would wear with a gown or costume, just make them longer.

A last question, should I buy a 4 way or 2 way stretch direction ? I dont really know the difference so I need your help again ... and then I'll can make my gloves

author
Emsaid made it!(author)2010-03-12

I would buy a 4 way stretch

author
lejun made it!(author)2010-03-12

What the difference between it ? And why does the 2 way is more expensive ?
And what's better, Cotton or Nylon ? I know I've got a lot of questions about it, but it will be my first gloves

author
Emsaid made it!(author)2010-03-12

the 2 way stretch only stretches two ways, so the 4 way will be stretchier, also i would go with the nylon because its stretchier and thats what we want

Ok, so thank you for all

I've just seen the price With the exportation in France, and it's too expensive for me, at this price, I prefer buy gloves at market ... Sad World ...

Try secondhand clothing shop/ thrift shop. Find something that is the correct fabric and cheap and use that (may be a stetchy womans skirt for example).

author

 I have to try this, I have webbed hands, as in extra webbing between my fingers and missing knuckles on some fingers making some of the longer fingers on a standard hand shorter, Etc... I had a set of goatskin gloves custom made for $500 at one point, and ever since have modified my own, I love this idea

Thank you

 I think Spandex is a US trade name, the same fabric is called Lycra in Europe.

This is great, especially for anyone with non standard hands. I need compression gloves, but those I've bought have been baggy. Thanks! Now I can make my own.

seems like this type of fabric could get kind of unsettlingly annoying when it rubs up against itself or your short fingernails, i don't know about other people but i hate that kind of waxy feeling..*shudders* 

author
Emsaid made it!(author)2010-03-08

doesn't bother me

author

strange, i wonder if im thinking of a different kind of fabric.

I really hate it when you touch a piece of nilon clothing with dirty hads.  *shudders even more*
