Gloves made from jumper sleeves

Here are some gloves that my 9 year old daughter recently made. These are so easy to make that she made them all by herself with no help from me!  With these particular gloves what we did first was shrink the woollen jumper in the wash so that it was more like felt so when cutting the sleeves it was easier (no loose wool threads!). This is optional and you don't have to shrink them if you don't want to. I have written the easy tutorial for these below.

Step 1: Cut off some sleeves from a jumper ( My daughter added extra length so to turn the cuff down. optional)
Step 2: Turn inside out, cut a slit through both sides (make sure wide enough for your thumb!)
Step 3: Sew up the sides of the slits, so making a space for the thumb and a space for the fingers.
Step 4: Turn back out the right way and then add decoration. (My daughter sewed on some fancy ribbons.)

My daughter loves wearing these for school every day and is so proud of the fact that she made them herself!
