I saw a program on glovemaking. The very best pattern is....Your Hand! You make a tracing and cut out 4. Then you make a narrow strip which is sewn to both layers, and goes up and down between each finger, connecting it all. Do a web search and see if you can get more details on this. It actually looked pretty easy, except you must do very narrow seams.

If you velvet doesn't stretch your gloves will have to be garden gloves are..gloves that are fitted stretch.

Andrea, thank you for the idea! And thanks Pam for making clear that fitted gloves can only be made with stretch fabric. :smile: Hope Ozll will find this helpful too :smile:
