A few weeks ago a lovely lady called Alison contacted me and asked if I could make some felt fingerless gloves for her friend.
Her friend always signed off communications with a peapod or gloves so what better than to merge the 2 as a present. Alison was originally given one of my peapod brooches as a gift and contacted me through the website.
Felt gloves are not something that Id ever thought of making but I love a challenge so I jumped at the chance.
- The gloves will be fingerless but have a separate section for the thumb
- I will use merino fleece in a combination of different greens mixed with black and mulberry silk tops
- There will be a peapod on each wrist
- The gloves will be lined and have craft felt edging on the thump hole, finger hole and opening
I created some moulds from bubble wrap and felted the fleece round them to create the fingerless glove shapes.
