- My first initial thought is that a stretchy glove is going to be hard to work with, as Nicole found out. Unfortunately, those gloves are the easiest and cheapest to get a hold of.
- You do probably want a larger glove. It's not imperative, but it'll probably make this project easier.
- I don't know if Nicole tried hand sewing or machine sewing her project (I'm guessing hand sewing by what she said, but I'm not positive), but I would venture to say that machine sewing this will make it easier. First, sewing it by machine would help to cut down on how much the cut glove was handled, thus reducing the fray on the edges. Second, you don't have to worry as much about pulling the stitches too tight and having the edges get puckered. Now, I do understand that sewing machines aren't always accessible, I'm just saying that if there's one around it might be easier and you might get better results if you use a machine. I'll test that out...I'll do one by hand and one by machine and see how it goes.
- There's a product called No Fray Spray that is supposed to help keep fabric edges from coming undone...I don't know if it'd work on a knit this big or not...but there's a possibility.
- And then, as Nicole found out, the stuffing and pipe cleaners are just essential to really pulling this guy together.
