December 15, 2010


Fingerless gloves have become one of my favorite winter items.  
Here is a pair that I embellished with some felt flowers and vintage rhinestones.

 Look for old wool sweaters at the thrift store and felt them by washing in hot water.  They can then easily be cut up with no fraying edges.
Happy day!
