DIY “together forever” gloves

“Together Forever” Gloves

Why are they called this? Well…separately, they don’t look like anything. Together though, they reveal the intended shape chickadee!

_______________________________________________________

together forever gloves

What you need:

Emma Grace's quilt 009

All you got to do is cut out your shape from felt. Cut that shape completely in half.

Emma Grace's quilt 010

Emma Grace's quilt 011

Put one half (in my case the heart) on one of the gloves…pinky side, not thumb side.

Sew all around the shape with embroidery thread, making sure you don’t sew both sides of the glove together…take it from my experience. Haha. It was definitely a shock, Haha!

Do the same thing to the other glove, sewing the shape to the pinky side, not thumb side.

When you put your hands together, they make the shape! Next pair I make is going to be a dachushound! Won’t that be cute? I included the pattern piece in the pattern above.
