I am not a fan of cold weather and I definitely don't like snow.
Luckily one of the perks to living in the south is we very seldom see any snow.
I also don't like to wear sweaters because I get too hot and they make me itchy.
I own mostly short sleeve shirts so in the winter I get a little chilly sometimes.
To keep warm I wear cardigans because I can take them on and off throughout the day as needed.Sometimes though I just don't want to mess with them all day long.
I thought fingerless gloves would be a good solution.
And I was right!
Oh how I love these!
They are my new favorite project. They are so pretty and feminie.
I love everything about them......the colors, the crochet trim, and especially the flowers.
I made these last week and have already worn them three times.
Both times I received tons of compliments. Both women and men have commented on how pretty they are.
That's when I knew they were really great!
It all started when this shirt got little holes in the bottom close to the hem.
I knew right away what I was going to do with part of this shirt!
I cut off the sleeves and went right to work on these.
I laid the sleeve out so the bottom of the sleeve would be past my elbow and the shoulder part of the sleeve was at my fingers. Then I drew lines between each finger and both sides of my thumb.
Then I sewed around each black line in a skinny U shape. On the outside of the thumb I sewed down the line and then tapered out to the seam.
Next I cut on the black lines between each finger. On the outside of the thumb I cut 1/8" away from the stitching.
Here's what it will look like this far. Repeat with the other sleeve.
Turn them right side out and let the fun begin. Embellish them!
I chose to sew on two layers of crochet trim to the top.
Then I made flowers with some thinner crochet trim.and added a "pearl" button to the middle of the flower.
I put them on and didn't take them off for the rest of the day :o)

Do you know how hard it is to photograph your own hands and arms???
Not easy! I tried, but it just wasn't working.
i think Dakota may have a future in photography :o)
