floppy glove fix - tutorial

Thursday, January 19, 2012

So, my gloves don't necessarily "fit like a glove".

The thumbs are so long and floppy I can't even wear the darn things without going nuts.

And no, I don't have freakishly short thumbs.  They just fit poorly.

And yes, it would be easy to buy another pair.  But I keep forgetting :D

What you'll need:

  • ill fitting gloves you're too forgetful to replace :)
  • needle and matching thread
  • pin
  • scissors
STEP ONE:  Turn your gloves inside out and place on hands

STEP TWO:  Insert pin just above the tip of your thumb or whatever fingers don't fit (careful not to poke yourself!)

STEP THREE:  Starting at one end, stitch a curve for the new top of your finger piece.

STEP FOUR:  Snip off the end, and turn your gloves right side out again.

Tada!  They fit!!!

I'll be linking up to these fab parties!

  14. Gloves can be fixed! What people do most of the time is to replace their gloves if it doesn’t fit. It’s a really smart thing to know whether a glove can be fixed, especially if it is your favorite glove and it no longer fits.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, you guys totally make my day!
