Christmas Mod podge fun

....still in love with Mod podge,
so I had a little more fun with it.
I just used some paper napkins and some ribbon ,
and there you are.
To finish it I crocheted a little red heart,
for which I used this pattern here .

update on the gloves

When you end off after crocheting your gloves, be sure to leave enough yarn so that you can 
 sew the side seams together (leaving an opening on each glove for the thumbs) 
To make the thumbs ,
crochet 4 rows of single crochet round the bit you left open for the thumb.
 row 1 : 22 sc
row 2 : 20 sc
row 3 : 18 sc 
row 4 : 17 sc
Make sure you fit the glove while you are crocheting so you can adjust the stitches to make a perfect fit for yourself. 
Crochet 2 rows of 28 sc round the wrist side,
 to finish of the gloves .

Happy crocheting !

crochet fingerless gloves tutorial

For these gloves I used 

Stylecraft Special DK

 and a crochet hook 3,5

CH 29
(or a chain that is the length of your desired glove) 

Row 1  - SC in the second chain from the hook and in each chain across.  = 28 SC
CH 1 and turn.

Repeat row 1, 23 times or until the glove wraps snugly around your hand.
You can make them just one colour or make stripes or do some tapestry crochet  .

This is what I did :
6 Rows Burgundy
1 Row, 2 SC Burgundy, 2 SC Mocha,
1 Row, 2 SC Khaki, 2 SC Mocha,
15 Rows Khaki

to be continued
