Gloves Tutorial by mangalphantom Gloves Tutorial by mangalphantom
Someone asked me if I had any tips on making gloves, and I just snapped a few pictures of my own that I was making. Just thought I'd share it with you guys, hope it comes in handy :D!

This was originally posted on my facebook page, I wanted to upload a higher-res version here.

Hi! For this particular glove, I used two-way stretch pleather (also called faux leather).
However, you should be able to make gloves using this method with any material that stretches c:! (I usually like using lycra)

You did an amazing job on the gloves, they look great! If you don't mind me asking, what material did you use for this project?

Thanks a lot! I used two-way stretch pleather (only stretches left and right) for this particular glove.
But you're able to use any kind of material to make gloves, provided it stretches at least in two ways! (if it stretches in all directions, it's known as four-way stretch material e.g. lycra)

Hope that helps!

This is a life-saver! I'm making a cosplay that requires gloves and they're designed in a way that I couldn't just buy regular gloves :P And the character isn't popular enough to be able to just go on eBay and get some. I can't wait to get started! ^^

Any ideas on making elbow length gloves? You think this method would work?

Making elbow length gloves with this method should work fine! 
Just extend the length of your material, and make sure it stretches sideways at least ;D!

I never really knew how simple making gloves could be, wow! Thank you for these tips! This is much cheaper than buying a particular pair online for $30!
