Then add the following steps:
- Cut out the pattern
- Trace both parts of the pattern on FOLDED fabric (this will only give you one seam for each piece). Do this twice as you need two pieces of each. NOTE: This pattern is for jersey, add about 1cm on each side if you are using fleece or any other non-stretch fabric.
- Fold the thumb piece and stitch together as shown in the pattern.
- If you are using a fray-fabric, hem the top of the thumb bit. If you are using fleece you dont have to.
- Fold the arm bit and sew together as shown in the pattern
- Now for the tricky bit, adding the thumb piece to the arm piece. There is a way of doing this that makes it very comfortable but I havent figured out how yet to be honest... It has to do with the angle of the thumb piece. I would suggest you try it out for yourself as I normally just sew it in and after wearing the arm warmer for a bit they kind of tend to mould to my arms anyway. So pin the thumb piece onto the arm piece and stitch together. This can be tricky as this piece is tiny.
- To finish, hem both the top and the bottom of the arm warmer and you're all done :)
The other pair is Halloween themed and has a black and orange candy cane pattern on it. My favourite so far :)
I'm planning on making some for my sister in blue so when I do, I will post a proper tutorial... I hope this one wasnt too bad...
