When your washing-up gloves spring a leak, don't throw them away. Cut off the thumbs and index fingers of both gloves. Slide them onto your thumbs and index fingers to provide a bit of grip on a piece fabric during free motion machine stitching.
(I also cut the wrist part into circular strips to make rubber bands - waste not want not.)
Good one Lyn and Tracy's Husband. They would be good finger protectors for needle felting too Lyn. I like your reasoning too Lyn.
I think they may be too loose for needle felting Ann, as there is a lot of hand movement when you're using the felting needle, but they are perfect for guiding felt around under the sewing machine needle.
