Glove Material...?

    Glove Material...?

    I'm in the process of making a pair of hand stitched gloves for my mannequin. I always assumed that the patches on the gloves were white (then weathered), however, on close inspection of shots from Brak's CD my wife suggested that the patches were possibly the same material as the vest... tackle twill ...any info would be helpful.

    I've attached a picture showing the vest material side-by-side with a glove. I've tried to show the vest material at the same zoom as the glove so you can see the weave.

    I believe that Tyler Durden verified the material is the same. I wish I could find the thread.

    How are the new gloves coming along?

    Will these be for your mannequin only, or will you produce them in larger numbers, and sell together with the rest of your Bobamaker stuff? (The gloves for sale through your site now look different, and thinner.)

    I've narrowed down the suppliers for a lot of the items I'm getting, but I'm still looking for a maker of accurate gloves...

    I've almost finished my gloves, I will then need to weather them. I don't think I will be making these for sale, the amount of work involved with all the hand sewing makes them incredibly time consuming and very tricky.

    Thanks for the update, DAZ! What material did you end up using?
    I hope you can share some photos once they're done. (And perhaps brief instructions too?)

    I finished the gloves yesterday and I have just finished weathering them, here's a picture.

    I didn't write any instructions, it was just a matter of plenty of patience with a needle and thread . Start with the base gloves, then just cut and add the white pieces. The only things that were sewn using a machine were the stripes of thread on the large patches. To weather I used a little light grey acrylic (very weak mix), this dulled down the colours slightly and toned down the contrast between the glove and the patches.

    Re: Glove Material...?

    are you going to sell these later on, the old set that you made Daz are wearing out, is this a new product that you are thinking about doing?

    I think he already stated in an earlier post that he probably wouldn't be selling these as the hand stitching is very time consuming.

    And trust me I know what he means. When I made my ammo belt I handstitched all the detail and it was a real pain in the...hands!

    Great looking gloves!!

    Re: Glove Material...?

    I won't be selling gloves made this way I'm afraid, they are very time consuming indeed. Sorry guys

    Re: Glove Material...?

    How about offering the gloves in a 'kit' form? I.E. so all the time consuming hand stitching can be done by the buyer...just a thought...( sort of stitching by numbers )

    Re: Glove Material...?

    Sounds like that might work... I'll need to see what's invoved and I'll get back to you. Thanks for the thought

    But after seeing the Fett Exhibit at C4 http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showthread.php?t=19361

    Re: Glove Material...?

    Maybe you know this already, and maybe you don't but you can get the tackle twill coated for heat sealing/adhering. Tackle twill is the material used to make letters and numbers of professional jersey. Sewing in the stitch line around the gloves would be much easier without having to worry about losing the alignment and without having to use pins to hold it in place. Your stitching would only be aesthetic in that case. Look into

    http://www.tackletwill.com

    for example. I hope this information works for someone to help them out.

    Anyone know where to get the base gloves from? They are 100% cotton parede gloves, right? I can't find them anywhere.
