- May 15, 2007Greetings
Thank you for the compliment. The pattern was created by myself specifically for my lord.
The site posted below shows how to create your own pattern for a complete glove. I have
not added the thumb piece, but left the opening. I removed the pinky finger and adjusted
the opening there. All other construction instructions are the same.
This site got me started in the right direction. It helps to make a mock-up in felt wool to
get the proper fit, as it mimics leather. You can use recycled leather but watch for dye
leakage. The very first archery glove I made for myself ended up leaching dye and my hand
would be black and blue after use!
There is also a Yahoo!Group for glovemaking called the Society of St. Anne. Very
informative. There are books too.
