My mom bought my gloves from Claries as well! That's one place you can
go to find good quality gloves (elbow long or wrist short) or a costume shop.
When it comes dwon to making the *tops" you call them, you could better
yet try red ribbon, red felt and stuffing. You want to attach three strips
of red ribbon around the open end of one glove with hot glue or by sewing.
Repeat for other glove. Attach either three strips of felt or one wide
strip of felt around the open end of one glove. Repeat for other glove.
Measure the appropriate length around your elbow before cutting the
length of your cloth. Cut the width of the cloth at a little more than
double the desired height for the entire ensemble of the three bands.
Fold the cloth in half along its length and put a little stuffing along
the inside of the fold, then sew along the length to secure the band.
Put some stuffing inside the cloth, next to the seam you just sewed,
and sew along the length again to secure the second band. Put some
stuffing inside the cloth, next to the seam you just sewed, and sew
along the length again to secure the third band. Depending on how
you choose to attach the ensemble to your gloves, choose whether
or not you should tuck the ends inside. Sew the completed ensemble
to your glove. Repeat process for other glove. (These glove tips and
more can be found on the following link that I cut and paste here for you)
