So, to solve this problem, I made mittens that would stay on the handlebars of the bike and not get lost. You don't even have to search the house for gloves.... they're already right where you need them.
Step 1: Supplies and Preparing the pieces
1/4 yard of fleece (1/3 yrd if making for adult hands)
6 inches velcro (stick on, or sew on)
measuring tape or ruler (not pictured, sorry)
Have you got your things together? Let's begin...
1. Fold up the length of the fabric 5-7 inches (depending on the height of the hand you are working with)
2. Have the person you are making these for extend their thumb, and place their hand onto the folded edge of the fabric along their thumb line. (see picture). Take a marker and draw a line around the hand, leaving about 1/2 inch space from the edge of the hand.
