I looked around my home and happened upon the inside lid of a vitamin bottle (no, I don't know why I was saving it). One side of the paper is foil-like and the other looks like white plastic.
I cut strips approximately 0.5cm wide, wrapped one round my finger, and it worked so well, I sewed two into the tips of the thumb and index finger of my favourite gloves!
It looks like this.
OK, the sewing is a bit dodgy
When I had unpicked the stitches on the fingers; the seam allowances are teeny - thats my excuse!
I Made sure to leave enough foil on the inside of the glove to make contact with my skin and complete the circuit.
I've been stood at the same bus stop for nigh on an hour awaiting my bus to Pollards Hill on many a very chilly morning.
I took them for a test run this very day. I swyped, WhatsApped and performed every other phone function I cared to, with success and warm hands as well as heart.
I'm going to wash my gloves on friday and do a very brief 'result' post.
Doctor, doctor, I keep thinking I'm Nelly the elephant. Here, try these trunkquillizers.
