I know these gloves aren't much but I thought I do some pics of how I made them on the off chance that I'm reinventing the wheel and some kind soul could point out how to make improvements. I'll let the pics do the talking.



Probibly a bit of overkill but at least this way the opening of the glove doesn't go too cockeyed.

I double stitch the sides of the glove to keep them from splitting when I turn them inside out.



This shot shows that I have to support the finger and let the tube be pushed out by the brass rod. Once you do it once you'll see it's dead easy to turn the fingers inside out. All done inside of a minute.




I have been modifing my hands by chopping the fingers off ragon hands and replacing the fingers with thick solder which I can then bend to pose the fingers. I'll try and get a picture of that asap.

Any suggestions on how can improve these gloves? I'm not 100 percent happy with how wide these sucker are but I can't get around the three stitches finger width or reduce the one stitch between each finger. Maybe the pattern needs to be changed about to reduce the width?

Thanks for looking. Hope this is kinda clear, if not let me know.

That's darn good I tried that before but very hard to when I turn them inside out.

Can post the pattern in a flat file. or maybe the line drawing only.

You know, you could start a tidy little cottage industry... I'm sure ther are parties who would give you money in exchanges for goods and services.

<COUGH> send me some gloves. <COUGH>

Scanman's sewing machine looks like my mom's sewing machine that uses the foot to press on it?

Amazing work!

Great gloves! I suggest using a thinner material. Pleather and suede are very thick materials (for 1/6 scale) especially together
