Steampunk Sky Pirate Gloves by kyphoscoliosis Steampunk Sky Pirate Gloves by kyphoscoliosis
Ingredients:
1 pair of Dollar General® gardening gloves
1 cheap designer belt with double leather buckles/straps
1 cheap purse from Goodwill® for scrap vinyl
8 folding paper pushpins
2 cogs from a steampunk earring set
1 tube cheap superglue
1 pair fabric scissors
Add a little sewing and elbow grease and ye gotcherself a pair a' good ol' steampunk sky pirate's gloves :3


:boing::boing::boing::boing::boing:I had no idea these simple things were going to earn so much popularity. They're even snaking their way through tumblrs and other kinds of blogs. Please, if you're going to make these, give credit where credit is due.
:boing::boing::boing::boing::boing:


:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:I'm in the process of updating and improving these gloves (but I'm also working on other projects). They'll look much better.

NOTE: Neither I nor my brother do custom work. Our crafts are strictly for our own use and are unfortunately not for sale. We have neither the time, money, nor patience to make these crafts a continuous job.
You can also thank :icongothanist: for making me remember why I don't do custom work and never will again.

But I'll show you when it's done!

To me nothing actually LOOKS like the listed materials aside from the belt. At least as I know the materials here in the UK.

You don't see the pushpins or the vinyl straps they're attached to that I cut from a purse? Oo;
Not sure if you'll be able to find the gloves I used as a base for them in the UK.

I can't even tell what's vinyl. Here vinyl is a shiny rubberlike material

Vinyl comes in lots of forms the world around sweetheart. The "x" strips on these gloves are vinyl.

Haven't gotten around to revamping them yet. They'll look a lot better then. Can't believe how stupid popular these simple-ass things got.
Thank you, though! <3

What a great idea! I've been looking for ideas to make or buy steampunk-looking gloves, and this gives me hope that I can make them myself very cheaply and still have them look good. I will definitely give you the credit for the idea if I do decide to make some. :nod:
