i have gloves!! i can sew!! but i could use practice, and more tips. most of these dolls are just okay, but right now all i make are monsters out of socks, and i need to diversify. now i will be able to make a chipmunk! huzzah!
In case you didn't figure this out from the title, each project in this book is made from a set of gloves.

Happy Gloves is different from most of the other craft books out there. This book begins like a children's storybook with a photos of every project and a little story about a fat chipmunk (the chipmunk is my favorite project, btw). The use of buttons, hand embroidery, and ribbon as embellishment is genius!

After a short story that includes photos of the various projects, there's a sewing over

I really wanted to like this book, because it would be a great project for my daughter's Girl Scout troop, and knit gloves are on sale for 50 cents a pair at Target this time of year.

The book has brightly colored photos and cute line illustrations for 21 different items you can make out of gloves, mostly animals. The text is spare and centered in the page as if it were a picture book for very young children. In fact, if you just wanted to get this book to read to your child, you could do that (t

Seems easy enough to follow but some sewing proficiency would probably be best.
ok, so the little glove critters are really cute, but the format of the book was a complete turn-off. I have this issue with being spoken to like I'm a small child, and this book is set up completely like an illustrated picture book aimed at 3 year olds, language and all. Not a good way to gain the favour of your 16+ crafting audience. Granted the second half of the book which contains the patterns and instructions for the projects is written like the typical craft book, it's almost not worth wa ...more

Just picked up the companion book. I hope my luck is better and my animals resemble...animals. I've to try- it's the crafter in me. :)
Perhaps things made out of socks and gloves are not for me. My animals require imagination to enjoy. Perhaps I'll have better luck in the summer. Great book though with darling projects. Would be fun do with kids.

These projects are adorable! the drawings that accompany the instructions are super-duper cute, too! The only bad thing is that I am tempted to 1. keep all single gloves now, and 2. possibly destroy a pair just to make the adorable chipmunk!
Seems like a good intro to making stuffed creatures from gloves. Cute, but not a compelling craft. Great photos and design, along the lines of the Japanese craft books that normally aren't translated into English.
Another volume of amazing animal creations from the author of Sock and Glove. I haven't made any of these yet, but most look like variations on the same designs. The chipmunk and frog seem to be the most promising.
So fun! I feel like I could actually make the crafts from this book. Plus, the directions are *awesome*! Not only do they have illustrated directions but step-by-step photo illusrations as well.
Cute little critters to make with those cheap dollarstore gloves. These would make great gifts for my kids to give to their friends. Simple to sew and cheap... can't ask for more can you?

Just as adorable as her previous book, the patterns are easy and more varied. The book includes the same fully photographed instructions and multiple pictures of each completed project.
Cute ideas for turning knit acrylic gloves into little dolls and animal toys. Great choice for a beginning crafter.
One of the few books that I feel warranted the full purchase price, original ideas with cute results.
This is a cute book but I don't know if I will make the little critters.
This is a super cute book with great ideas for simple projects. Very cute.
really fun and cute book! easy to follow instructions.
What great ideas for leftover socks!
Small book with awesome ideas.
