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.
