Alison's Felt Fingerless Gloves

Posted on


A few weeks ago a lovely lady called Alison contacted me and asked if I could make some felt fingerless gloves for her friend.

Her friend always signed off communications with a peapod or gloves so what better than to merge the 2 as a present. Alison was originally given one of my peapod brooches as a gift and contacted me through the website.

Felt gloves are not something that Id ever thought of making but I love a challenge so I jumped at the chance.

Gloves specification:
  • The gloves will be fingerless but have a separate section for the thumb
  • I will use merino fleece in a combination of different greens mixed with black and mulberry silk tops 
  • There will be a peapod on each wrist
  • The gloves will be lined and have craft felt edging on the thump hole, finger hole and opening

 gloves - greens gloves bubble wrap

I created some moulds from bubble wrap and felted the fleece round them to create the fingerless glove shapes.

Im really pleased with the result and Alison was too, she said her friend loved them.
This may be an idea for a new George&Lilly line.....
