I make these and then make a liner of fleece. I will try to post photos or you can go to my web site at to see photos. I sold these at a craft sale from $18 to $25 depending on size, etc. Tried to post photos but I'm on my laptop in another state, so you can check them out on my website. It's a great way to use sweaters. I made one pair out of "grandmas" sweater for a lady whose grandmother had passed away and it was for a memory of grandma.

And How to make Glittens got more views, almost within a day, as yours does now?

I'm sad about the placement of Instructables on this website.

I love the style of your instructable. What program did you use to make all your pictures? (if you're willing to give away your trade secret.)
