Rubber gloves with decorative cuff and ribbon trim.


I love these rubber gloves but the ones I’ve found are either too expensive or are not well made so I decided to make my own. These are so easy to make and  are so pretty that  you won’t mind leaving them out. The space under my sink is a scary place and for some reason I can never keep it clean.  Now I just leave my gloves hanging out.

Measure two inches from edge and mark. Now measure one inch from that point and mark again.  Now mark two inches from your last mark and then an inch from that point.  Repeat this all the way across.

To make pleats take the first mark you made and place it on top of next mark which should be one inch from your first mark.  Repeat this all the way across pinning each pleat as you make it.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
