How to make costume gloves

For Halloween, the hubs and I both needed gloves to go with our Incredibles costumes.

Fabric isn't a problem but finding elbow-high gloves for each of us was a daunting task so I set out to make us each a pair.

For mine, I used some black swimsuit fabric. It has LOTS of stretch so I wasn't worried much about the fit. For Mr. Incredible's gloves, I used a t-shirt knit. That worked out great as well. Whatever you decide to use, make sure it has lots of stretch and if one direction stretches more than another, make sure the stretch is side-to-side on your hand, not from fingertip to wrist.

The following tutorial includes pictures from my first glove which I added fabric to in order for it to reach to my elbows. For my husband's gloves, I included the arm part by just

Start by tracing around your hand on a paper towel or piece of tissue paper. Pin the paper towel to two layers of fabric, right sides together.

Using a stretch stitch on your sewing machine,

Remove the pins and rip off the paper towel. Don't worry if it doesn't all come off, you won't notice it. If you're worried that you will, you should be able to soak off whatever remains.

Turn the glove right side out.

And try it on!

This only works with really stretchy fabric but I have to say, it was a super quick way to crank out some super hero gloves. They were comfortable too. I'll probably think twice before throwing out another paint-splattered, hole growing t-shirt ... perhaps some fun gloves can be created out of it instead.

Thank you for reading,
Julie

  2. Bechamp supported (quip expected) the Terrain Theory. The Terrain Theory advances that it isn't germs that make us wiped out, it is a frail and helpless body nature (or inside condition) that makes us "become ill". germaphobe
