Diy Fingerless Gloves

28 Feb

My last table of the day Wednesday was a guy and a girl, about my age, that appeared to be on one of their first few dates. He was southern and well-mannered. She was beautiful and mysterious looking. Long dark-blonde wavy hair, little to no makeup and a throaty voice. We chatted about local beers and other bars around the city. When they left I found her gloves in the seat. I scanned the parking lot but they were gone. I put her gloves aside so she could reclaim them one day, but not before I admired the shabby finger-less cut she had given them. They were cute, with a little brown button on each one.

So I ripped them off. I started with my white gloves that I always wear.

I cut an inch off of each one of the fingers, then I used a lighter to burn the edges. It keeps them from fraying and I think it looks edgier than it would if I just hemmed them.

I found some cute little buttons that I had cut off of an old shirt.

I used a Sharpie to color them black.

I hand sewed three on the outside of each glove, then I added a couple of studs just because.

Aren’t they fantastic?

I encourage you to disassemble and reassemble, have a good evening friends!
