    New gloves progress

    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.

    Hey JFJ!

    How did the dye take to the poly? I've got a couple pair of gloves and they are a mix of cotton and poly.

    Holy crap on a bun, I forgot about this thread!

    The dye took pretty well actually. I am going to pick up some of the white cotton 'parade' gloves to make my next pair. These ones are already starting to get pulls in the fabric.
