Today's post is inspired by the Old to New event being put on by Natasha from Required2beinspired and Kimberley at A little bit of this!
These are a pair of black leather gloves I picked up for free from Swish in Edmonton on my girls weekend with Natasha! I got them with the intention of making them over and just never made the time but luckily the refashion idea of Old to New came up and I finally got it done!
I knew I wanted them fingerless, so I put a glove on and marked with chalk where to cut off the fingers. Then I laid both gloves together to make sure I cut them evenly!
I used this random lace from my stash to decorate around my wrist. I marked where I wanted the lace and then sliced on my marking all the way around, then inserting the lace and stitching the ends together.
I had originally thought of doing a couple layers of the lace woven up the glove but in this rare instance I'm thinking less is more!
Now I really want to find some more gloves I can chop up because this project has really given me some great ideas for other glove DIY's!
