Got a pair of plain gloves…

Oct 8, 2009

If not, I found this pair along with pink, brown and navy in the $1 section at JoAnns.

Simple Green Gloves

Cut out some flowers from cream felt using a Sizzix die Flower Layers #3. Accent them with a simple backstitch using #543 embroidery floss.

Hand stitched felt flowers

Cut three leaves free hand and make a butterfly out of the 2nd to smallest flower on the Sizzix die Flower Layers using the same cream felt. Stitch a simple backstitch on these as well using the same #543 embroidery floss.

Accented leaves and butterfly

Attach a pearl bead in the center of two vintage buttons using #543 embroidery floss.

Buttons with pearl bead center

Create 2 tulle flowers using white tulle gathered with #543 embroidery floss. Trim the edges of the tulle flower with pinking shears.

Tulle flowers

Layer the flowers together and attach each flower layer using Fabri-Tac  (I layered the flowers in this order large flower, tulle flower, medium flower, small flower and button). Attach the butterfly to the pinky on the left hand glove using Fabri-Tac. Attach two leaves on the flower for the left hand glove and one leaf on the flower for the right hand glove.

You’re finished and have a super cute pair of gloves for the winter. Terri has already made claims to these so it looks like I will be making another pair.
