Not sure if you know this (probably) but I really dig the 99c store.  When I used to ride a motorcycle (ok, scooter) I had about 50 pairs of knit gloves in the seat storage because my hands were always cold.   Plus, it's just a good idea to wear gloves when you ride.  In THE BIG ASS BOOK OF CRAFTS 2 I used those 99c store gloves for an entire chapter and this project is one of them.  Just because your knit gloves cost 99c, doesn't mean they can't look like that cost a fortune, right?!  
Here's what we're making!
Here's the how-to video (You're gonna luv it!)
Here's what you'll need:
Sewing machine
Matching thread
99c store knit gloves
Matching fabric (I used wool)
Cut 2 pieces of fabric 12" x 18"
Fold one in half (matching the 12" edges) and stitch across it using 1/2" seam allowance
Fold it in half and press
Insert the glove matching the raw edges of the folded fabric to the cuff of the knit glove
Stretch the glove and stitch the cuff of the glove to the edge of your fabric

Turn right side out and repeat!
Love them!
