Introduction: 3 Minute Touchscreen Gloves!
I wish I knew about this before I spent $40.00 on a pair of touchscreen gloves! This craft is easy, cheap, and I have no idea how it works, but it does!

Step 1: What You Need
All you need is some metallic thread and a pair of gloves. I had a spool of Coats metallic sewing machine thread, so I used that.
Step 2: Double the Thread
I folded the thread in half before I threaded the needle so that it was actually four threads thick. This isn't necessary, but saves time.
Step 3: Sew Away
Start sewing from the inside of the glove so your knot is on the inside, and doesn't show. Then, sew from the middle towards the outside so that it looks sort of like a starburst.
Step 4: Tie It Up!
Once you have sewed a circle about the size of a dime, thread the needle through to the back and tie it off.
Step 5: That's It!
How long did that take? a whole three minutes? I just did the right handed index finger, but if you want to, you could do all 10! Now you are ready to call, text, surf, tweet, or whatever...but whatever you need to do, your hands will be warm!
