Alabama Chanin Fingerless gloves



Alabama Chanin Fingerless gloves

These fun and funky fingerless gloves are light enough for an evening summer-to-fall transition, or serve as that extra layer you will need in winter. These are black on top of "faded" organic cotton jersey fabric, bloomers stencil. It's all hand sewn with black thread. I started with a kit, so they worked up in no time flat, just a couple of evenings' stitching. I'd love to make a pair in red! Or cream and white would be really sweet.


Here's the Alabama Chanin fingerless glove kit, domestic organic jersey cotton, all cut and stenciled, including thread. 


I'll be teaching this class at the Stitchin' Post  in Sisters, Oregon on November 18th, 10-3. You can choose between the fingerless gloves or a table runner for your class kit, or purchase both if you like. Check out their website for all the details and to register online. Stitchin' Post is also having a class preview party on September 6th, from 9-2; and they're having a special tea party on October 25th to introduce everyone to the beautiful, creative world of Alabama Chanin and hand sewing! (More details on that later.)

If you're in the area, or would like to visit the quaint little western town of Sisters, Oregon, I hope you can join me for my class, the preview and/or tea party. It's for beginning as well as experienced hand stitchers alike. It will be so much fun, and you'll learn all about hand sewing, different techniques and stitches, everything needed to finish your useful and beautiful kit, and the knowledge to make many more heirloom creations in the future.

  1. Fingerless gloves are often padded in the palm area, to provide protection to the hand

  2. Interesting. One could easily applique an extra layer or two to the palm area for added protection. Thank you for the idea.
