Step 1
To get started, down­load and print the Dish Glove Ele­phant Bag Tem­plate.  Turn the glove inside out and mark the lines using the template.

Sew a line under the mid­dle and ring fin­gers and then cut the fin­gers off the glove. Shorten the index fin­ger by cut­ting and sewing as well.. Cut the cuff off the glove accord­ing to the tem­plate and then cut out the ear using the excess material.

Step 5
Using scis­sors, cut one small hole on each side of the bag. Cover the end of the cord with tape to eas­ily pass through the holes. Remove the tape and care­fully hand sew the cord.
