You may have seen my gloves I made last year from a couple pairs of $1 work gloves.
Last week I found some gloves at a thrift store that looked to be parade gloves. I dyed them with Peal Grey RIT dye, and I've started with the patches. They fit 10 times better than my old ones, and I'm pretty happy with them. Only problem is they are polyester, and I'd rather get cotton ones. I guess this can just be a practice pair.
I'll post some more photos tonight, hopefully they'll be almost finished.
