Our friend was wearing his leather gloves inside a pair of oven mits as he carried in a hot pot. The heat from the pot ended up going through the oven mit to his gloves and burned a little hole in the finger.
He left the gloves with me and the next morning I headed to the store for some material. I found some pleather that would match perfectly. Thanks to a coupon + getting only 1/8yd, I got the material for less than $1. I found some dry cleanable fabric glue, made my purchases and headed home.
I was able to finish my little project up by bedtime and take them to church the next morning to hand them off to their owner. I was pretty impressed with myself and hope they hold up!
