How to Make Three Fingered Gloves




i saw a picture of these in a book and wanted to make some, but i didnt want to hide it from any of you guys!

Step 1: What You Will Need

stretchy fabric (Lycra, latex)
a sewing machine
pins to hold everything in place
toy stuffing (basically cotton)
this template
a silver gel pen

Step 2: Cutting and Sewing

print off the template as a full page, and cut it out.

get your stretchy fabric and draw around the template onto the fabric using the silver gel pen. do this eight times.
cut them all out.
pin two of the glove things together with the pins going horizontally to how you're going to sew them.
get the sewing machine and sew the glove things together, but not the bottom part! make sure that the fabric on the right is approximately in line with the foot of the sewing bit. when it comes to turning a corner, make sure the needle is in the fabric, lift the foot, and turn the fabric. after this, put the foot back down and continue sewing.
do this for every two pieces of glove thing.

Step 3: Stuff Them!

stuff every glove thing with the toy stuffing, but stuff it lightly. don't turn it inside out and stuff it! do it the way it is! don't do too much on the fingers or hands. after this, sew the open parts closed, but it doesn't have to be in line with the foot this time.

Step 4: Almost There!

right, pin together two of the stuffed gloves, then sew them together just outside the previous sew lines. do this with the other two.

Step 5: Yay! You Made Three Fingered Gloves!

turn them inside out and wear them. if you find that the fingers and/or thumb is a bit long, just sew it shorter and cut off the excess!

     And does it have to be with a stretchy fabric?  Could it be done with a not so stretchy fabric?

    Sort of begs for a meta-instructable: How to use a flatbed scanner like a camera. ;)

    I'm sure I've seen a project elsewhere on using a scanner as a microscope?
