a chilly day for typing away: fingerless fleece gloves diy

fingerless gloves for typing The sewing/computer room is either freezing or very very warm. At the front of the house, the big windows make it a chilly room and the sun does not come in on this side. It becomes very warm when the iron happens to be on. It is very rarely perfect temperature in here.

So on the frigid days, my poor little typing hands would become quite chilly. I tried wearing regular gloves, but then my fingertips were useless. I considered buying fingerless gloves, but being the little seamstress that I am, I figured they wouldn’t be hard to make.

And, they weren’t.

I traced my hand, added about a centimeter around, and after some fidgeting I had a successful glove. I used the cutest green fleece (with giraffes!), meaning it would be cute, cozy, & warm, plus it wouldn’t ravel. I used pinking shears on the bottom edge, and on the knuckle-tips I just left it as is.

So the pattern is available for printing; to make sure it comes out the right size, it should be about 10″ high. My hands are relatively small, so adjust the pattern as necessary. Simply cut out four pieces of fleece, and stitch together the sides then the edges of the fingers. DO NOT cut a “v” shape between fingers; simply a slit, once the seam allowance is in, is fine for spacing.

Enjoy this quick and cute project! If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them!

    That is the cutest fleece print I’ve ever seen! I might have to make some of those. My hands are always cold, which makes knitting and typing hard.
