Today, as I was surfing new blogs, I found one that showed how to turn a pair of socks into a pair of finger less gloves. I was definitely excited by the prospect, because I could find something really cool at Dollar Tree for the project.
Fingerless Arm warmer Gloves
What You'll Need:
1 pair of socks- at least crew length or longer. Ankle or no show won't work.
The socks I chose were a perfect fit for Raegan with a tan, blue, black, and green argyle pattern.
- First off, you want to cut the feet off the socks, right above the heel, so you are left with the leg portion. Set the feet aside for future project scraps.
- Turn the sock inside out, and roll the cut end down to form a hem.
- Using the sewing machine and the zigzag stitch, sew the hem around the sock to keep it from fraying. You can trim the extra length from the hem, as it tends to roll outward otherwise.
- Pull the sock on your arm, with the elastic side going up your arm. Measure where you want the thumb hole, and with help, safety pin the two sides together where you want the fingers to be separated.
- Carefully pull the socks off, and clip a small hole for your thumb.
- Using the sewing machine again, stitch a straight or zig zag stitch around the thumb hole to keep it from stretching too wide. Tack the sock together where each safety pin is, to create finger holes.
Raegan loves her new gloves, though I think next time around, I'll cut the thumb hole further down, so I can have the gloves go further down her fingers. They are cute, though, and just her style. She already said she can't wait to show them off at school tomorrow!
