Archery Glove by Demara Archery Glove by Demara
Lots and lots of help from my boyfriend on this one!

Custom-fitted glove made of garment leather, intended in theory to protect my arm from the bowstring.

I am so happy with the way this came out! I was thrilled when I'd progressed from the patterning stage to something that could be worn. It fits like... well, it fits like a glove!

Rivanius, it's not the fletching I'm hitting my arm with, it's the bow string. Yes, if my posture was perfect, this wouldn't happen. It's not, so I get a bruise on my inner forearm sometimes.

Looks good, but still i have to point out one thing. If you need to protect your arm from arrow fletching, you´re doing something wrong.

Interested in it, and I like the idea. Do you have any more pics, plans or blueprints?  also well done looks amazing.

I'm glad you like it! There are a few more pictures in my gallery, but no, no pattern to share.

Aw, that's to bad! I was about to ask you if you could share some information on the pattern and how you came up with it. : ( Lovely work though!

Love the look on this glove. It's a nice change of pace from the usual leather gauntlet and looks like it would fit the bill for anyone of a ranger/rouge persuasion. Great work!

It looks awesome!

Though I hope you're not going to use it with a strong bow. The leather looks too thin to protect you from the string when not holding your arm correctly...it's pretty painful when it hits your lower arm, I'd make a second layer at the parts where it could hit you if you haven't done it already. :)

You're right, I'd probably have to reinforce it for heavier bows, or if I used it all the time. I made it for a LARP, and the bows must have a draw weight of 35 pounds or less at 28 inches draw. I shoot rarely, but I don't think I've hit myself yet to test this. :D
