These wristwarmers / fingerless gloves will keep you warm and cosy in winter.
Tubular cuffing is available from fabric stores, but if you can't get it, use the leg part of some long, stretchy ribbed socks instead
Gather together the stuff you need....fake fur fabric ( I'm using the long pile stuff) scissors, cardboard template, tubular cuffing ( or socks)
Make a cardboard template 8" x 4.5" approx.
Place on reverse of fur fabric, and mark around with chalk.
Then mark another one with chalk
Cut out the two pieces...use sharp scissors and snip through the backing fabric only...do not cut the furry pile if possible.
Take you furry pieces and determine what is the botom...pile of fur should run down towards bottom and ovehang the edge.
Now oversew the bottom edge with zig zag stitch to prevent fraying, whilst keeping the long fur pile out of the way if possible.
Fold over, and sew a narrow seam
Repeat with other piece of fur, and set aside for later......
Now take the cuffing ( or socks) and cut two tubular pieces about 4 -5 " long.
Oversew all round the top and bottom edges with zig zag stitch to prevent fraying, or apply "fray check".
Pin stretch lace all round top edge
Either tack or pin in position, then attatch lace by sewing two rounds of zig zag or stretch stitch.
Looks like this .....
Insert this into furry tube made earlier, whilst repeating sewing mantra " right sides together..."Pul lacy edge right through till level with bottom edge of furry section
Match up top edges and sew all round with zig zag or stretch stitch twice...once near edge, and again about quarter of an inch below
Looks like this....
Turn right side out...
Either brush pile smooth, or leave tousled for a wilder look!
