Yes, we all have those lonely "one" gloves laying around...but recently, I was on an Etsy blog and I found--wait for it, wait for it--a how-to for a recycled glove chipmunk softie!
There is a book called Happy Gloves: Charming Softy Friends Made from Colorful Gloves by Miyako Kanamori that gives tutorials on what cute friends to make out of lonely gloves.
At http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2008/recycled-glove-how-to-make-a-chipmunk-softie/ there are the instructions (along with pictures that I have pasted below)
I pasted the pictures, but for written instructions, please visit http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2008/recycled-glove-how-to-make-a-chipmunk-softie/ Or just buy the book. Every crafter should have a copy of this cute how-to book!
