These gloves are perfect for pictures or play time. This pattern is also a great scrap buster for those ruffle fabric leftovers that you don’t want to part with.
You will need:
1/4 – 1/3 third yard of knit ruffle fabric (this pattern needs the fabric to stretch so fleece will not work)
Jersey ball point needle

Step 1 -
Download the free pdf pattern and print it up. For instructions on how to assemble the pattern click here. If you want a glove that goes just past the wrist cut at the pink dashed line. for a longer glove leave the pattern the full size. Lay the ruffle fabric out flat. Make sure the ruffles are laying in the same direction. Cut two of the pattern piece in the size you desire.
Step 2 -
You can finish the ends of the glove if you want – but it’s and unnecessary step. Fold the pattern piece in on it’s self so right sides are touching. Sew one seam (using a .25 inch seam allowance) from the base of the glove to the side of the thumb. Sew another seam from the side of the thumb to the top of the glove. This should leave a hole for your thumb. Turn right side out. Finished!
Tips for adjusting the size – everyone’s hands are different. You may want to adjust the seam allowance for a better fit.
