A few months ago, I had a gift from my friend for my mom.
It was a pair of gloves from Target.
I asked her what she wanted and she said “something that’s going to make my life easier.”
So she went to Target and bought them for me.
My mom is a professional glove maker and so she knows how to make good gloves.
She said, “I need you to make me gloves for my birthday.
And they’re going to be for my brother, my brother’s brother.
And I need gloves for myself.
And my brother is so cute and I need him to have them.”
She put them on a shopping list for me to buy.
I said, OK, but what do I do?
And she said, I don’t have time to do it.
So I called Target and asked about the gloves and they said, they have no spare gloves in stock, and we have to order gloves from Amazon.
I didn’t really care that much.
I had an order to make.
So after I finished buying the gloves, I went to the gift shop and got a new pair of hands.
So now, I can do it in less than 10 minutes, and I can wear them for work or for parties.
It’s so liberating.
So that’s the first thing.
Then I have to do something with them, and that’s where I learned about making things in your own home.
When you make things at home, you can start to take your creativity to the next level.
It turns out, you don’t need to have an office or a warehouse to make things.
You can start with a couple of small kitchen items, and then you can take your design to the entire house.
So you don-you know, you’ve got a piece of wood, and you can just build it out in your garage or your backyard.
That’s really where the creativity comes from, and the end product comes from that.
I just love to be creative and make things out of my garage.
So, that’s what I try to do.
I start with something that’s small, like a small kitchen item.
Then, I make a bigger, more complex item that I want to make, and once I have that design, I just add the wood or whatever else that I have.
It all comes from a love of making things.
Now, that first thing I did to make a glove was to cut out some pieces of wood for a little bit of the handle.
And then, I put the wood into my garage and just got the pieces of the wood.
I got a couple more pieces of wooden that I could use for the gloves that I made.
So once I got the wood and the handle, I got to start thinking about the whole glove.
What do I want them to look like?
I figured, what are my expectations for them?
And so, that became a lot of my thinking on how to do this glove.
So what are the things that I expect them to be good at?
So I wanted them to have something that would hold their shape, that would be durable, that was going to last, that I would want to wear for a long time.
So for my gloves, that started with a big piece of metal and a big metal ball.
And that became the handle that I started with.
Then a few weeks later, I started getting into making the palm of the glove.
That started with just a couple pieces of wire, and it got bigger as I went.
Then that got bigger and bigger and eventually I got wire from a metal bar.
And those are the pieces that are going to attach to the palm and the handles.
Then then I got two more pieces and a metal ball that I’m going to put on the handle and make it into the palm.
And once I get that all together, it’s a pretty solid design.
So then I wanted to get a little extra.
So when I first got the glove, I didn-I didn’t get any buttons.
I did get some buttons on the palm because I thought that was a cool touch.
So the next thing I needed was a little little more texture.
So my first idea was to make them into a glove that would have a little more elasticity.
So they’d be kind of like a little booty bootie.
But that was too hard.
So next thing, I needed to make it a little thicker.
And when I made them into the gloves I needed something that was really durable.
So there were two different versions of the gloves.
One of them was made from a little piece of wire.
And one was made out of a metal plate.
And both of those are durable.
And the second one is the one that I got.
And so now, the gloves are all made from one of the two versions of a glove.
And if you take those two different materials and combine them together, you get a really good glove that will last for a very long time
