D.I.Y. fingerless gloves

Since the cold weather is upon us, I wanted to share this "fingerless gloves" tutorial with you. It's quite simple to do and is a great money saving alternative.

Supplies you will need: acrylic/polyester gloves(preferably colored ones), scissors, lighter

**If you are under 18, please consult with your folks before you do Step 2.

Step 1: Trim off the finger part of the gloves at the desired length. It usually measures around 2 1/2 inches.

Step 2: Sear the frayed edges with a lighter. This step helps the gloves to not unravel. It's also best to make sure the material is acrylic or polyester before searing. Natural fibers like wool/cotton will give off an unpleasant odor and is not recommended.

Step 3: That's all there is to it! You are ready to wear your new fingerless gloves.
