Make your costume gloves touch-screen friendly!

So this is an insta-share.

Last year at the guild's Candlelight (outdoor in December) event, jenthompson and I bemoaned the fact that our awesome and otherwise perfect gloves wouldn't operate our touch screen phones.  Kinda cramps your style when you want to be warm AND take all the pictures.  We both agreed there must be an easy way to add a little pad of that fabric that modern gloves come with, but after the event I promptly back-burnered the idea.

Fast forward to today.  A cold front blew in last night and it's feeling like fall all of a sudden.  Since I'm totally procrastinating on getting my sewing room tidied up, I figured I could do something at least a little productive and research that fabric.  Turns out it's called 'conductive fabric' or, as in the case of the Instructable tutorial above, 'conductive thread.'  I ordered a small spool from SparkFun that should be enough to do all my gloves and then some.  I love simple solutions!
