Woolen gloves keep hands toasty, but they can make for some slippery situations. To get a better handle on things, try this: Download our template, print, and cut out. (You may have to reduce or enlarge the image, depending on your glove size.) Trace template onto Ultrasuede fabric; cut out. Turn template over, and repeat. Sew onto gloves by whipstitching around edges of fabric using matching thread.

Use this tailor's trick whenever you need to cut a straight line through a woven fabric such as cotton or linen. Tease several threads loose at the point where you'll make the initial cut. Then gently pull out the threads to create a trail of perfectly aligned holes in the fabric, which can then guide your shears.

Even if you tend to be scared of your own shadow, you'll still smile at your reflection, thanks to this friendly spirit on your mirror. The cutout is made of frosted-glass window film, which adheres easily and (like ghosts everywhere) disappears without a trace. Download the template, trace onto the film, cut out with a pair of scissors, and apply.
