Decorative Dish Gloves
What you will need:
1/4 yard Fabric or Oilcloth
Hot glue gun (optional)
1. Wrap fabric around glove opening one and a half times. This will be your measurement on how long the fabric needs to be. Cut at 1.5x mark. Depending on how much fabric you want at the top of your gloves will determine the width of the fabric you will cut. The width on my finished set is 5 inches.
2. You will want to “ruffle” the fabric before you place it on your gloves. It is VERY easy to make a ruffle. I am sure I do not do it the correct way but coming from someone that knows VERY little about sewing, I think this is the easiest. Just set your sewing machine to make a long stitch and sew down the long piece of fabric making a straight line. You will then hold the threads on one side and pull one of the threads on the other to make the ruffle. I also found this tutorial on how to make ruffles, to help.
3. Place fabric around gloves and measure to make sure you have pulled enough ruffle. When you get the look you want, remove the fabric from the gloves. Take the short edges of the fabric, put the “right” sides together, and sew them together. You should now have a complete ruffled circle.
4. Slide the glove onto your sewing machine. Place the fabric wrong-side out on the machine over the glove, leaving a 1/2" of glove at the top, and stitch together.
5. (optional) Hot glue coordinating ribbon around the glove, leaving two long tails on the top of the glove (if you want a bow). Tie the tails in a bow.
**Note: I did a zig-zag stitch around all raw edges of my fabric before sewing anything. If you have a serger just do a quick serg. Or, if you like the frayed look just leave them raw.
That’s it! This project cost a total of $0.97! The gloves were on sale and I had a coupon, the rest of the items I already had on hand.
