No-sew Fingerless Gloves


This is the story of a pair of trouser socks that I've had for 3 years, and have never worn once. Waste!!


So I slipped them on my arms, and snipped a couple of threads at each fingertip. And they became fingerless gloves! No sewing involved, hot dog! Except the couple of stitches to add the ribbon bows.


My husband quickly pointed out that fishnet always looks scandalous to him, and to tell you the truth I was feeling a little like Madonna, despite my attempt to make them look innocent by pairing them with polka-dots. (there can never be anything scandalous about polka-dots, right?)


So I scrunched them down, and we both agreed that the preacher's wife could get away with wearing them that way :o) Everyone's happy, and now my trouser socks will get some use! Happy day :o)




And thank you to God, who was considerate enough to send a little snow for my photo shoot. It added just the right touch :o)

  2. You are definitely the most stylish preacher's wife I've seen. Only a little Madonna and the bows saved the day. I think the snow was perfect, isn't God great?

  15. Ooh, I've been looking for a way to get away with wearing a cap-sleeved (polka-dot, even!) dress in the wintertime. This is perfect!

  16. So cute! I love the polka dot dress.

  17. OH! I love them! Is there another kind (un-fishnetteed) socks that you could see this working well with? I have no imagination.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR DISNEY-

  18. Sure! You could do it with any kind of sock, you would just have to cut the end off and hem them up, which is a little tricky, but it can be done with a little patience! I'd love to try it with some sheer black dress socks with polka-dots.

  19. I have a necklace my husband refers to as my 'hooker' necklace and scowls at me whenever I try to wear it... consequently I rarely wear it. I imagine fingerless fishnet gloves whoul get the same review.... BUT maybe some black trousers socks will work too. great idea!

  22. What a great idea. I have just recently come across your blog and love all your ideas. Now I wish I had a little girl to try some of your ideas out on. Keep those amazing ideas coming.

  23. I agree with KJsMom that you are the most stylish preacher's wife I have ever seen. All the mom's at your church must love you.

  24. So cute! What a fabulous idea! Makes me want to go through my sock drawer and see what I can do!

  25. We all need to be a little scandalous once in a while right!!! Love these babies!

  26. I'm kinda weary of fishnet too, but these are great! The snow was just the cherry on top. :)

  27. There's nothing scandalous about fishnets. They're adorable with the bow and polka dots. It's a person that is scanadlous, not their gloves! Sheesh.
    Anyway they look great. Everything you make looks great.

  28. Strange that covering up your arms and hands would be considered scandalous. It's the fishnets, they do it every time. Cute, though!

  29. Nice gloves. But awesome photos. I'll admit I thought preachers' wives are stodgy oldies. Clearly I was wrong!

  30. SO AWESOME! I just found your blog and was blown away by your talent and style! Thanks for sharing!

    BTW, Madonna-esque in a very good way.

    Cheers!

  32. I though it was funny that you said, "there could never be anything scandalous about polka dots". My mother told me that back in the day Abilene Christian College(Texas) would not allow young ladies to wear polka dot dresses because it was too much of a temptation for the young men to want to poke the dots. That has always made me laugh.

  33. That is completely hilarious!! I would never have thought of that. Did your mother go to ACU? I'm familiar with it-my husband preaches for a Church of Christ. I have some friends who have attended ACU as well!

  34. You are so funny.. I love your balance of scandalous and preachers wife! Hey, not all preachers' wives should have to be frumpy!

  35. My mother went to Beauty School but was from around that area (country) and knew people that went there. I myself spent my freshman year at Lubbock Christian in the late 90's but they were not that strict, not quite anyway. I am really enjoying your blog and have a little girl around the same age as yours, so I am loving the little girl ideas.
    Thanks

  36. Awesome! It may look a little scandalous, but it will shake things up a little and keep people guessing. ;-) That's from one pastor's wife to another.

    LOVE how creative you are with your wardrobe.
