Texting Gloves

Or typing gloves, or fingerless gloves--whichever name one puts to them.  I started the NewYear off right by sewing up two pair of these easy to make but kinda' cute hand warmers.  The pattern is V8703, by Marcy Tilton.

 They need a knit fabric-fleece or any other type of appropriate weight knit.  Mine are made from black stretch Velveteen, with black stretch lace trim.  These are the easiest little thingies to make, and I can see them in a leopard print or brightly colored knits, or even made from a discarded sweater.  The most difficult part of the whole thing is finding stretch trim, which I'll be watching for now.



These texting gloves would make a nice little gift, especially for those who work in an office that's drafty.   A little late for Christmas, but there are other holidays, and Christmas does come around again before we blink an eye.  Marcy talks about them here:http://marcytilton.com/index.php?cid=1703 

Daughter, you're getting a pair, sweetie.

How cute! I'd missed that pattern completely!

I'm definitely planning on making some of these up (I don't text, so I'm loathe to call them 'texting gloves'...even as a gift for texters).

As much as I love to support Marcy T, these seem so simple that I hope I can successfully draft them up - yours are adorable!

Those ARE super cute! Part of my job is training in an often cold room and these would be great.

Cute idea! Hope you're over your flu bug - you must be if you're back at the sewing machine!

Now aren't they the cutest things? You are so creative with your fabric and trim choice. Reminds me of a Victorian Lady's parlor gloves.

Gwen, guess what? I finally took the plunge and bought the book Pattern Making for Fashion Design. I agonized because of the cost, but now I am so very glad that I did it. I love the book. It has a wealth of information in it that I can use.
