Bunting gloves tutorial and a GIVEAWAY!


Remember this inspiration post from the other day (above photos and more)? Well, I really WAS inspired and so I got to work... making these:
And I love them!! I actually bought the $1 gloves awhile back to do some sort of holiday tutorial but I was never inspired to do anything until now. It was super simple, so I give you a tutorial annnnd a chance to win these very gloves! (Love them but I am moving to Florida....)

Materials needed:
plain gloves
wool blend or recycled felt (the cheap kind at joann's)
embroidery floss
emroidery needle
hot glue

1. cut small triangles out of various colors or shades of felt.
2. place them on your gloves to decide how you want them configured.
3. put a TINY dot of hot glue on each triangle and place it on the glove (this will hold it in place while you embroider).

4. cut a length of embroidery floss and take apart two of the strings, instead of using all the threads. (you will use the other threads when this one runs out).
4. tie a small knot at the beginning of one triangle (I did it on the outside because it was hard to get inside the glove and do it, but if you can, that would be even better). I used a dab of hot glue on the knot so it won't come loose.
5. embroider the "V" part of each triangle (don't need to do the 3rd side) until your thread runs out. Then start a new one (when you end the other, tie a knot and dot the hot glue).
And there you have it! your own bunting gloves!

And now you can win them! Yay for a GIVEAWAY! So here are the rules:

I love this! After you first posted about those gloves I kept the image up in a browser tab for a few days. I'm not sure we'll need gloves much longer in Pasadena, but it's still cold in my shop!
