Turn Lonely Gloves into Cute Critters

The book Happy Gloves shows you how to recycle your mateless gloves into new friends.

Rejoice! No more will lonely, single gloves hang about forlornly at the bottom of the laundry basket waiting for their perfect match to emerge from the vortex of the clothes dryer. In Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made from Colorful Gloves author Miyako Kanamori shares instructions for turning those unattached gloves into tiny stuffed animals like the chipmunk pictured here. Stuck with more solo socks than gloves? Find craft ideas for those in the author’s earlier book, Sock and Glove: Creating Charming Softy Friends from Cast-Off Socks and Gloves.

Downloadable directions for the adorable glove-to-chipmunk transmogrification above can be found at etsy’s handmade blog, The Storque.
