Techie Tuesday #1 - DIY Touchscreen Glove's

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Have you ever been out shopping in a busy city, when it's really cold, carrying five bag's, your headscarf flying everywhere and have your phone ring?? Annoying?! Oh yes! It's especially so when you have a lovely modern smartphone with a touch screen! Juggle shopping bag's, open hand bag (whilst keeping an eye out for any dodgey character's!) take gloves off and answer phone...or not, because you were too slow after all that fuss!

To save yourself from all that some people invented "touchscreen gloves". Many of them are not all that fashionable whatsoever and charge you silly price's to save the inconvenice.

However in this issue of "Techie Muslimah" I have found a way to beat them!

You can use your favourite designer pair of glove's, wooly one's or even your modesty glove's which many sister's wear so you don't have to uncover in public.


A quick and simple DIY!

All you need is a needle and some conductive thread. You may have some in your garage at home, if not it's pretty cheap at 99p (free P+P) for 1 metre on ebay! You could even do your husband's or teenage kid's whilst you're at it, so they never miss your call again.

Many glove's will have a seem at the very tip of the finger. Simply thread it in and out a few time's leaving about 1cm, loose inside. This part will need to reach your finger in order for it to work. I recommend this way if your glove's are quite expensive, as you can alway's remove the thread without leaving any hole's. Otherwise, thread in and out of the area where the centre of your finger print would be. Remember to tie off your end's so it doesn't come loose and you're done.

You have some 'new', modern, techie glove's of your choice, all for 99p!
