Happy housewarming!

Who remembers these two lovelies?

I had fun recreating something not quite as grand as Kim's gloves as a housewarming present for my friend's boyfriend. No excuses not to be a domesticated goddess now!

To make them, I secured the purple feather trim to the inside of the glove by machine.  I used a zigzag stitch with yellow thread on top and purple in my bobbin.

To finish them off I slip stitched the blue feather trim on the outside of the glove to cover the machine stitching.  I did this using invisible thread which is always a bit tricky to use but I persevered through the feathers.

I'm pretty pleased with them!  Let's hope they get some good use!
