Of all the simpler projects in Weekend Sewing, the Quick Gardening Gloves are my favorite. The idea for this project actually came from Melanie, whose little garden gets a little more productive every year. When I was invited to appear on The Martha Stewart Show, I made Martha herself a pair of these gloves, using Liberty of London cotton jersey, available at B&J Fabrics here in New York and online.
Pair these gloves with a gardening tool, packet of seeds, and pretty little tag, and you have a very sweet and very simple little gift. I chose strawberries (natch) but the possibilities are endless. You can download the instructions here, along with some little gift tags ( I finally found a home for my little crickets!) to print.

Oh, and speaking of beautful seed packets, take a look at this gallery. And have a look at these lovelies... maybe not the most seasonally appropriate, but gorgeous, yes?
