Iron Man was first a comic book published by Marvel and later adapted into movies. The popularity of Iron Man continues to grow and many people, both children and adults, dress up as Iron Man for Halloween. Making the gloves for the Iron Man costume takes some concentration, but the result is well worth the effort. Choose a fabric that goes with the rest of the costume so that the gloves will match the rest of your costume.

    Making the Gloves

  1. 1

    Measure the hand from the knuckles to the wrist and from one side to the other. Measure the length and width of each finger and the thumb.

  2. 2

    Mark the cutting lines in chalk on the red fabric based on the measurements for the fingers, thumb, and hand. Add 1/4 inch to the measurements on all pieces all the way around for the seams.

  3. 3

    Cut out the pieces. You will need two hand pieces and two pieces for each finger and the thumb.

  4. 4

    Pin the pieces together. Holding the right sides together, pin each finger and the thumb piece to the hand piece. Repeat for the back side of the glove.

  5. 5

    Sew the fingers onto each glove piece, leaving a 1/4-inch seam.

  6. 6

    Sew the glove together. Holding the right sides together, sew along each side and around each finger and the thumb, leaving a 1/4-inch seam. Turn the glove inside-out.

  7. 7

    Repeat all steps for the other glove.

    Making the Center Piece

  1. 1

    Make a circle 1 inch in circumference out of the yellow fabric. Make a circle 1 1/2 inches in circumference out of the black fabric.

  2. 2

    Cut out the circles. Cut out a circle from the centre of the black fabric measuring slightly less than 1 inch in circumference.

  3. 3

    Hand sew the yellow circle into place on the centre of the palm on the left glove. Hand sew the black circle around the yellow circle. The black circle should slightly overlap the yellow circle.
