Hello The 36th Avenue readers!

My name is Angelina and you can find me blogging over at Ruby Jean’s.


Today’s tutorial is

How to make Fingerless Gloves.


This is a very quick and easy project and one that even the children can get involved in.

I used basic fleece that I got on sale at Joann’s.

I also used felt and pom poms for the embellishments.


Using a blank piece of paper I traced around my daughters arm and for the fingers

I marked where I wanted the edge of the glove to be.


Using my cut pattern I placed it on top of my fleece and cut a total of 4 pieces.

I wanted the edge to be scalloped so I used myFabric Scallop Scissors,

size Large ( LOVE these things, they work REALLY well on Felt ).

I then stitched along the sides of the arm and thumb ( right sides together )

leaving the place for the fingers open. Turn right sides out.


Try on to make sure it’s a good fit and to mark the placement of the stitches for the fingers.

If working with little people hands you can always use a Water Soluble Pencil

or Marker to make your finger placement marks.

Now would be the time to make any adjustments needed for sizing before you stitch your finger holes.

I ended up re-trimming the edges on the thumb and hand to clean them up a bit.


Now!! Like any good DIY Crafter we can never just leave things plain and boring,

we have got to find ways to embellish and make things a bit more exciting. S

o I decided to add some fun flowers to these Fingerless Gloves.

I drew a basic flower shape for my pattern and cut a total of 6 flowers ( out of white felt ),

each flower was made up of 2 big flowers and 1 smaller flower for the top.


I layered my flowers, being sure to of center each flower ( giving it more dimension ).

Using a coordinating thread I stitched my flower together pinching it in the center as I went along.


For the center I used 3 mini Pom Poms and hot glued them into place.


Using my bigger pom poms I took some embroidery floss ( leaving a knot at the end )

and pulled it through the center of the pom pom with a needle.

I made a total of four, knotting two of them together. I

 then sewed the pom pom to the back of my flower, then sewed the flower to the glove.

Another option would be, to hot glue a clip to the back of the flower so you can remove it when needed.


I hope that you enjoyed and will be inspired to make your own Fingerless Gloves.


Thank you again Desiree allowing me to come over and share with your lovely readers.


I love Angelina!

Let me tell you a little more about her.

Angelina is a stay at Home Mom to 5 wonderful children

and they are excitedly awaiting the arrival of their 6th baby ( any day now ).

She loves all things Crafty and DIY.

Sewing is something that she feels so very blessed to be able to do,

being that it was a desire of hers since she was a little girl.

She has never taken a class and have only learned what she knows through trial and error over the years.

She does however think taking a class on Period Costume making would be so much fun,

she says… “Who know, maybe someday in the future I will be able to do just that

but for now I will just continue to share the little bits that I do know :)

And we surely enjoy that!

Here are a few more projects from her that I adore!
