We sew gloves

Openwork lace mittens

We will need:

  • elastic material;
  • lace, rhinestones, other decor;
  • threads, preferably elastic;
  • rubber;
  • decorative lace.

First of all, it is necessary to decide what the height of the gloves will be, as well as what part of the palm and brush it will cover.

Important! Materials are only highly elastic, preferably stretchable in two directions - bielastic.

Working process:

  • We measure the girth of the hand at the upper edge of the glove, as well as at the wrist.
  • We measure the distance from the wrist to the middle finger, on which we will make a loop.
  • We outline the contour of the hand, make adjustments to the full volume of the hand.
  • The pattern is a single part with a fold.

  • We cut out the lace, we also try on a paper pattern about its location.
  • We cut out the blanks.
  • If the fabric rolls, then we process the slices.
  • Sew or glue lace, rhinestones.

  • Sew the side seam.
  • Turn the upper edge, stitch.
  • We make a loop on the middle finger of the decorative cord.
  • Try on.

Advice! You can sew lace on top of the fabric or make cuts and sew it into them. Alternatively, first wash the lace on three sides, and then cut the excess fabric.

Sports leather

Tools and materials:

  • Genuine leather, thickness 0.7-1.0 mm.
  • Threads.
  • Sewing machine. It is necessary that it is able to flash a double layer of skin. Most models of the Soviet assembly will cope "with a bang."
  • Foot for the skin.

  • We trace the outline of the hand on the paper, while adding 3 cm along the line of the pads.
  • Each finger is made twice as wide as necessary.
  • For the thumb, the magnification factor is 2.5.
  • The pattern is given for the circumference of the arm 18 cm.

  • Fold in half a sheet of paper, circle our drawing.

  • Cut out.

Important! Do not forget that the gloves are steam, which means that their drawing and all details must be made in mirror image.

  • We measure the distance from the edge of one finger to the edge of another. From large to index, from index to medium. This is necessary for finger inserts.

  • We make blanks, number them.

No. 1 - 5 cm.

No. 2 - 4.5 cm.

No. 3 - 4.7 cm.

  • We cut out all the details.

  • If you are sewing on your hands, we mark the stitch with a tool with a wheel and needles. If you are sewing on a machine, we simply sew the details of the gloves, starting from the thumb.

  • The steps for manually stitching are shown in the figure.

  • Sew the inserts between the fingers.

Important! When sewing, we make sure that there are no distortions.

  • Try on.
  • For convenience, we cut a hole on the back of each glove and, if desired and possible, make perforations.

  • We break through the buttons for fastening.

  • If there is no possibility to put a button, then a special button for jeans is perfect. But in this case, it will be necessary to make a loop.
