Step 1: What You Need
-needle and thread
-fleece (1/2 yard per glove, or 1 yard for 2 gloves)
-sewing machine (thread and matching bobbin)
-a bit of yarn (to match each glove)
Step 2: Cutting It Out
Cut two pieces around your hand, cut off at the thumb and fingers. (See photo)
Cut one long piece that would fit around your wrist like a wristband, twice and wide as you want the end result (see photo)
*in the picture of the wrist part, it is folded in half.
Cut out a thumb piece on the fold. (See. photos! )
Cut out 2 pieces that will fit over your fingers (not thumb. see pictures again )
*if you want to add a horn, spikes, or something else that sticks up from the head of the puppet, cut
one of the pieces in half. and yes, there's a picture.
Cut out little triangles out of white material (fleece or felt works best)
and also cut out black oval/circles for eyes (buttons work too)
Cut a bit of red yarn (about 1 1/2 inches, to make a loop that is a bit larger than your button)
Cut out a horn-shaped triangle from white fleece/felt.
Cut out eyes from black fleece or felt.
Cut 1 1/2 inch of matching yarn
Step 3: Finger Covers
If you don't want to add any animal/creature/character for the puppet-ness, just sew around the curved edges to make a pocket.
Sew on the eyes to each side :)
Lay the spike-y thingies on the side (like in picture 2)
Make a sandwich with the other side :) (3rd picture)
Sew along the side. with the sandwich. then you'll see picture #4.
Place the yarn in a loop with the ends sticking out, then place the second side on top. (sandwich again!) (picture 5)
Sew around the round sides to make a pocket-like shape.
Flip right side out! :) wooot picture #6!
Sew on eyes. :)
Lay on horn just like the spikes for the dinosaur.
make a sandwich.
sew the sandwich :P
WOOT! :) now sew the curved edge to make a pocket-y thing.
Step 4: Sewing Main Part
lay out one main part. (picture #1)
place one side of the triangular piece on top, like the picture for a right-handed glove, flip the thumb piece for a left sided glove.
Sew along the purple line :O (picture #2)
place the other main part beneath the other side, and sew along the purple line (refer to picture!! these instructions make no sense without them :P ) (picture #3)
fold in half, wrong sides out, and sew down underneath the thumb, and around the open sides of the thumb. (picture #5)
Step 5: Attach Finger Pocket
Place finger pocket like in picture #1.
Sew along purple like (picture #2)
Step 6: Sew Bottom Band
-Fold in half from right to left.
-Sew on purple line (picture 2)
-slide around puppet, wrong side out on the puppet, right side in on the bottom band.
- sew around bottom (picture 3)
-turn right side out. (picture 4)
-flip the bottom up halfway (picture 5)
-Sew on button where loop will attach. (picture 6)
- tuck the raw edge in and sew around. (picture 7)
Ta-daa! now you have some puppet gloves! :)
