Crafty Monday: Sweater Legwarmers

Fall is coming up fast and boy we cannot wait! This year I am so serious about making my own legwarmers to go under my boots, which was a hug trend that took off at the end of last winter and is blazing on for this upcoming fall! Since legwarmers can kind of be on the pricier side, I decided to share with you my "Girl on a Budget" DIY Sweater socks! Its super simple and somewhat environmentally friendly because we are going to make legwarmers from recycling an old sweater! Easy right!     Here is what you will need:
  • An old sweater
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread that matches the color of your sweater
Step One: Take you old sweater and lie it on a flat surface Step Two: Use your scissors to cut along the arm of the sweater two inches below the shoulder Step Three: Take your needle and thread and  gently make a loop stitch just to keep the cut part from fraying Ta-Da! You have an adorable pair of legwarmers that literally cost nothing. You can make the legwarmers whatever size and color you want. So now you finally have something to do with those old worn out sweaters tat have been sitting in your donate pile! Happy Crafting! ~ ♥
