Funky Gloves Tute & Easter Glove Refashion




So I had these ridiculous long socks that drove me nuts and would never wear them due to the length.  I decided to cut them off when I had to wear them because all else were dirty.  I was abou to throw them away when I decided to make them into gloves for my daughter.  Here is what I started with

I cut the thumb hole at the end that was finished (not the cut end).  Then I cut slits toward the the top cut off end.  I spaced them out so I could lace the ribbon through it.

I then decided to sew a straight stitch on the cut end to help keep its shape and fraying too much.

Next I laced the gloves.

Now put them on tie it in a bow. 

Cut off the excess ribbon and heat seal. 
I also want to show you these gloves or boves as my daughter calls them.  Her nana made these for easter gloves.- so stock up now!!

Have a happy hump day!
