Trendy Fingerless Gloves Tutorial:

FYI: I was 5 months prego during this taping!

I’ve been seeing them everywhere: Trendy, Fingerless Gloves.
Here is a pair you can make from a pair of socks.
I found these socks at Target for $2.
I tried them on and measured how high I wanted them above my wrist, then cut:
I then sewed the raw edge by folding the edges inward, then sewing a light zig-zag stitch.
Then I cut about an inch to an inch 1/4 hole where my thumb was going to be

After that, you’re then going to want to stitch the thumbhole with a heavy (meaning very close) zig-zag stitch. This not only makes the edge ruffly and cute, but also prevents fraying.
After doing that to the thumb hole, I thought it was so cute, I decided to do it to the other edge (the fingers hole).
Then I added a few snowflake buttons on the wrist to add a little bling and wahlaahh!

The fun thing about fingerless gloves is you can dress them up or down. If it’s colder outside, simply add a regular pair of gloves underneath. You can add any color to match your outfit!

Here are just a few pictures of celebrities wearing fingerless gloves. Hmm…are the 80’s trend making a come-back?
