Smart Gloves with Lace :: A DIY Project

The weather has been ridiculously cold here and needing to use my phone constantly, to stay connected with work, was proving troublesome to my frost bitten fingers.  While chatting with Tookie I mentioned this woe and she simply replied "you need some mittens".  Yes, yes I do.  Here is the DIY for my "Smart Gloves".

What you will need:

Soft thin lace
Transparent thread


Start by turning your gloves inside out
Using the thumb and index finger, as an outline, cut out lace
Hand sew your lace pieces into the glove seam of finger tips
Turn the gloves back out
Take your scissors and make a small hole in the tips where the lace will show.  Be very careful to not cut your lace inserts.
Once the small hole is cut you can continue cutting out the glove, over the lace, until only the lace shows.

Now you have smart phone ready hand wear for those chilly days!  I even tried these on protective cases, such as Otter Boxes, and they work perfectly!  Enjoy!

Love & Lollies...

  15. Such a great idea. I've seen smart gloves for sale, but they always seem so thick and plain. These are really elegant!

  16. The Nordstrom Opera Length Gloves are fingerless warmers that look great with bracelet length coats and cardigans. The McQ Wool Fingerless Gloves are made of 100% cashmere so look simple and feel soft.
