I wanted these to be warm so I started with a pair of long, brand new and never used black socks. They were perfect and fitted snuggly. I cut the feet off and whoila.. we got the back bone.
For the lacy ends I went to local Fabricland and got two types of lace. The wide one is the main piece that will fall over my hand and the smaller, more narrow one will be sort of filler on the top of the wider one, right at the wrist. I will also add the smaller one to the top of the warmer as a nice trim.
Here is the first step. Attaching the wide lace to the back bone with pins. I'm having so much fun with this. I'll be debuting these on Halloween night with the rest of my black outfit. That is if I can wait till Halloween night.. :o I also made some black bows and found some awesome purple jewels at Fabricland to go with these warmers. More on that in next post. :)
