Crafter/Blogger (I Heart Switch)/Author/TV personality Alison Lewis’s book “Switch Craft: Battery-Powered Crafts to Make and Sew includes some surprisingly simple DIY electric crafts.

How do you use your iPod and iPhone in the winter without taking off your gloves, without freezing your fingertips off?

Craft up a Gadget Glove (for yourself or as a really cheap n’ chic n’ unusual gifty-poo)! Make any glove friendly to iPods and iPhones by adding conductive thread to the finger-tip of the glove as well as the thumb-tip!

This is too cool:

Gadget Glove Materials:
– A pair of your favorite gloves
– Needle (medium sized)
– Spool of conductive thread (purchased at Spark Fun or Lame’ Saver)
– Fabric pen or marker

Steps:
1. Put on your gloves
2. Mark the location of where your fingers touch your screen with the fabric pen or marker, this will be your center mark.
3. Take off the gloves and thread your needle with conductive thread (tie a knot at the end)
4. Using the dot as your center mark, sew about a 1/4″ – 1/2″ square with horizontal stitches. The size depends on the size of your finger. Pull the thread all the way through to the inside of the gloves. The trick is that the thread touches your fingers on the inside of your gloves when you have them on.
5. Sew another square of vertical stitches on top of that one, tie it off, and cut the excess thread.
7. Do this for every finger you want to be able to control your device and then your done!

IT’S THAT SIMPLE!!!!!
+++ Love this idea and want more? Gadget Gloves are just one of the 20 projects in “Switch Craft: Battery Powered Crafts to Make and Sew.” Check out Alison’s blog for focus on technology from a fashion-centric female perspective.
