New arm warmers and fingerless gloves


When I signed up for the market at Tomorrow's Ghost Festival in Whitby on a short notice, I had to make some new products quickly. I haven't made arm warmers in a while, so a batch of them was my go-to choice. There are two types this time: the straight cut ones with or without cuffing and the fitted ones with thumb holes, or fingerless gloves. I picked some of my favourite fabrics that I'm sure you like too.

I also got a new zombie hand in the Halloween sale to model my arm warmers. :) You can't go wrong with stripes, can you? There is one pair with sketchy black stripes on purple (also used for a skirt). The thin fabric adds style to your outfit without being too warm. I can imagine the short ones in black and white with black lace well on a steampunky outfit.

The glittery spiderweb fabric is definitely a favourite. I don't have much left of this and cut these arm warmers out of scraps. One came out longer than the other and there is black on the back, but I think they are uniquely perfect that way. The silver and shiny black zebra is a bit more elegant, so I made the gloves in the longer version with 26 cm.

The black on black leopard flock print is not very stretchy, so the straight cut arm warmers work best and fit to almost everything. For the cute skull and crossbones arm warmers with grey splatters, I added some matching grey cuff material. The ones with wide stripes in black and grey also have ribbed cuffs and are extra long and can go over the elbow.
