Fall is nigh!

Fingerless Gloves

A Quick & Easy Project

Fingerless gloves are a novel concept.

I’ve found them a valuable asset in many situations.*

Wear them over you regular gloves or alone.


* You can use your touch phone, pad, etc. without need to remove them like regular gloves.





When it's cool enough in your room for everything but your fingers.

* They keep your hands warm in the house (even in the air conditioning) while maintaining your dexterity which is impossible when wearing regular gloves (i.e. sewing = hand quilting and embroidery and typing on the computer).

* They add an extra layer of warmth to your hands when worn over regular gloves and without extra bulk in the fingers that occurs when two pair of gloves are worn.

* They are warm worn alone outdoors before it gets cold i.e. fall and spring.

* If wearing the gloves and your fingers get a little chilly, simply slide the glove down over your fingers – it’s warm inside there.That

* If your arms get chilly in church or class, put these on and roll them up - beats carrying around a sweater (and losing one).

* A single glove makes a nice muff. You can fit both hands and forearms in.

* If your skin is sensitive, bruises easily, tears easily, long fingerless gloves will help protect them.

* If you have an injury to your arm that requires bandaging, fingerless gloves will hold the bandages in place and keep them clean.

* If you have to wear a wrist support, fingerless gloves will fit over it and make it look more palatable.

Pearls in flower centers and clusters of three (3) that emulate the clusters of 3 French knots within the design

Sewing a bit of rick rack into the seam seemed like the right thing to do.Close Up of Navy Cuff with Rick Rack in Seam

I wasn’t expecting this when I turned the gloves inside out

Gotta love that face!

Hubby sportin' his new gloves. Maybe I should have used a dark fabric.

Hubby happy with his new gloves

My Pink gloves are made from a tank top I love but has 2 bleach spots on the hem.
The pink stretchy lace is from the tank top. I removed it and added it to the glove

I originally planned to make this a one color design (lavender on pink)
However, when I found this fabric for lining I decided to make it two (2) colors (pink and green)

The one color design is digitized to sew without any jumps.
The two color design, the green sews without jumps but of course the pink has a jump between each section.
