jeweled gloves tutorial

I am noticing a trend this winter- jeweled gloves.

From JCrew to Valentino to Anthrolopologie everyone seems to be making gloves full of "bling". I love the trend but lets be honest, am I really going to spend well over $100 (at least) for gloves?!?! Yeah right! In my opinion this may be the easiest trend to replicate at home on a budget.

I started with a pair of chenille gloves for $4.99 but your could use just about anything- wool, leather, etc.

And acrylic jewels that have holes in them for sewing- but again lots of things could work- beads, sequins, crystals, etc.


I then hand sewed the jewels to the surface. This takes time and patience and the more patience you have the more you can embellish.


If you don't have patience there are a number of adhesive products that will also work and speed things up.

will all work for embellishing the surface.

The result is a really pretty set of fancy gloves.

I couldn't resist making another pair with all kinds of colorful beads for a different look.

And there you have it- a pair of fashion forward gloves- perfect for a holiday party, night out on the town or even a handmade gift. So much better than spending $100!

Very nice, your gloves are fabulous! That reminds me...I have some vintage gloves with bling tucked away somewhere...I'll have to dig them out so I can be hip this winter while I'm trying not to freeze!!
