As of today (10.23.10) this project isn't totally finished, but I was so excited I really wanted to share the work in progress. This is especially because I know the final part of this project - actually sewing the felt patches onto the gloves - is going to take a while and be rather annoying and difficult and will result in lots of little needle pokes. :(
So basically I'm just modifying a pair of regular old glove liners - like the kind you can buy at Walmart or Target - into cute little animal paws. Glove liners are actually designed to be worn inside of winter gloves in colder places, but in the Autumn or in milder climates they work fine by themselves.
I used Tacky Glue to attach the patches, and once the glue is dry I will attempt to sew them on so they're permanent. (Tacky Glue should never be used alone on anything that will be washed.)
When these are done I'll edit this to show how it turned out!
