I've always had a tough time with gauntlets, so I was very happy to see these turned out pretty cool.
Step 1: Materials
Brass fasteners X4
Step 2: Disassembling the Umbrella
Carefully undo the stitching holding the canopy together. You will need two of the triangles that result.
Step 3: Stringing the Gauntlet
Open the brass fastener and push the string into it as far as you can
Step 4: Applying the Brass Fasteners
Push the brass fastener with the string in it through the middle of the triangle, wherever your wrist will be.
Put another brass fastener through both bottom corners to hold them together as shown.
Step 5: Knotty, Knotty
Make a slip knot in one end of the string, and thread the other end through it. Tighten the slip knot.
The knot should always remain tight.
Step 6: Wearing It
Slip your hand into it, the string should be around your wrist.
Pull the string that is threaded through the slip knot until comfortable.
Not too tight!
Blood flow is a good thing!
Step 7: Is Reversible!
For variety of costume.
I hope you like them as much as I do!
