I'm thinking ahead to winter and although I don't need gloves (or other
heavy winter clothes where I live) I sometimes need them when I travel
to colder areas, hence my reason for making a sherpa/suede hooded jacket
and this idea has progressed to making gloves from some (hopefully)
The pattern for the jacket is KwikSew #3259.
Has anyone made gloves? any special tips? I'm assuming mittens would
be simpler but I've never worn mittens and think they might be too
restrictive? The sherpa/suede was an off-season bargain and is black on
both sides, but the price was right and seeing I won't get to wear it
too often I wasn't prepared to break the bank on this project, just for
the sake of colour. My preference would have been natural coloured
sherpa with caramel suede.
I've googled and found this site and it seems to have lots of helpful
info but knowing some of you live in cold climates I thought that maybe
someone has made gloves at some time?
'm guessing that I might need to 'shave' the fleece from the seam allowance so they won't be too bulky??
Any ideas would be appreciated.
