Tutorial: Easy Ruffle Gloves

I know, I know it has been FAR too long since I have posted. Work and Christmas have really caught up with me. But I do have some very special Christmas tutorials planned.
 
To start I have these simple gloves which can be made in less than 5 minutes!
 
Supplies:
Cheap gloves (I bought mine at Walmart 2 for $1.50 USD)
 
 
Cut 2 pieces of ribbon into 15" strips. Sew each together into a loop!
 
 
Burn the ends to make sure they won't fray!
 
 
Now there are 2 ways to do the ruffles!
 
Method 1:
To make the ruffles like this turn your gloves inside out and follow the method below!
 
 
Method 2:
To make the ruffles like this, use the method below on your gloves not inside out.
 
 
 
Pin the ribbon on like so. Make sure the middle of each side of the loop of ribbon are on the middle of the back and front of the glove.
 
 
Make sure the ribbon is hanging over a bit if you are doing method 1!
 
 
Stretch the glove over the end of your sewing machine, stretch the glove while you sew a zig-zag stitch over the middle of the ribbon.
 
 
Once you sew all the way around you are DONE!
 
Here is what it looks like using method 2:
 
 
And method 1:
 
 
If you are using thinner ribbon you can sew 2 ruffles...
 
 
That's all! Enjoy!
 
Happy Ruffling!
