Tutorial-Fingerless gloves....from socks!
I started out trying to make some leg warmers for my daughter using Sachiko's tutorial, at Tea Rose Home, but I didn't pay attention about the slipstitch(oops!) and they turned out funny on top, so....I came up with these instead!
Start with some cute socks....
Cut them off right above the heel, fold them over and hem them with a zig-zag stitch.
They will stretch out all funny, which is good. In fact, depending on the size of your hands, you may want to stretch them out a little as you sew them!
Slip them over your hand and cut a 1" (or so) slit for your thumb.
Then use your zig-zag stitch, with the stitch setting as close together as it will go, to outline the thumb hole.
Try it on again, and stretch out your fingers. Hand stitch in between each finger.Add a ribbon and a pearl, if you're feeling glamorous(I'm always feeling glamorous!)!
Put on your couture face, and wear them!
I was afraid I wouldn't have anything to wear them with, but I found this lovely brown dress and red jacket waiting in my closet! Hot dog!
