Fingerless Gloves for Kids {Guest Post}

Hello everyone! This is Becky from Patchwork Posse here to share a project that you can do along with your kids. I blog about lots of easy sewing projects, and I’m the home of the 52 Quilt Block Pick Up and the Yearly Round Robin.

With the cool air coming in and the mornings just a bit chilly when the kids are out and about going to school, having a pair of fingerless gloves is ‘handy’. They don’t take up a lot of space, {can easily be stuffed into pockets}, they leave fingers open so they can zip coats, find rocks, write in class or whatever as they go about their day.

Making a fingerless gloves pattern is super easy. Doesn’t take much- except having them sit still just long enough to trace their hands.

Fingerless Gloves for Kids, these are perfect for your little ones to keep their hands warm but still able to play and go about their day. She shows you how to make your own pattern as well!

Steps to make your fingerless gloves:

1) Trace hand on paper- make any adjustments for length around the fingers and how far to go on the wrist. Make them spread their thumb out just a bit so you can draw the curve.

2) Cut out on the drawn line

3) Pin paper template on fabric- make sure the stretch of the fleece is going side to side {or from the thumb to the pinky}

4) Sew the two sides just past the paper

5) Turn right sides out and try on

Making these is a lot of fun, and if your kids have friends that are about the same size, make a few more to have on hand for little presents.
