Fruit of the Spirit Dish Gloves

I had a special request from a good friend for 18
 of my "Fancy Smacie" Dish Gloves.

My motto is...
If you have to do housework
you may  as well look good doing it!

This was Linda's  last week for the bible study she was leading
 on "Fruit of the Spirit". 
 She wanted to do something special for the gals.
  So why not FANCY dish gloves. 
 Last year I was in the study and you may recall the gloves I made.  Take a look HERE.
Linda's only  request  was that the fabric had to have fruit on it.
So off I went to find "Fruity" fabric!

Here's what I came up with...

 .
I didn't want to use the typical fruit fabric.
  I wanted something bright that reminded me of spring time.


I love the PINK plaid fabric that I used for the yo-yos. 
I think you know by now that PINK is my favorite color.
 The fabric worked well with PINK dish gloves. 
 Gotta have a rhinestone for some BLING
 while doing the household chores.
So I added these MEGA teardrop rhinestones
 to the center of the Yo-Yo.


I wanted to do something special for Linda,
so I decided to make matching gift bags for the gloves.


I had lots of scrap fabric
because I had to match the Fruit pattern on each glove. 
I tore the fabric into strips and hot glued it to the bags.


The color combo was PERFECT !



 I made a tag for each bag that had the verse from Galatians 5:22.
I added a little flower and a bit more BLING
 with another  rhinestone.


This Red and White polka dot ribbon went perfectly
 and I had it in my STASH!


 
I had to try on a pair while doing some dusting.
It put a smile on my face.


The gloves were delivered and the last bible study was today.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their new
"Fancy Smancie" Dish Gloves.


These gloves are the perfect Mother's Day gift. 
 If you are interested in a pair with the matching gift bag,
 contact me.
.  The gloves and matching bag are $15.99 plus shipping.
  I also have some fun styles in  my ETSY SHOP.

I'll be linking up to these wonderful sites....

It's amazing how good you make a plain white gift bag look, Sherry! Your gloves are wonderful and what a great idea your friend had to give these as gifts.

{I mentioned you in my most recent blog post on a candle I dressed up}.
