Leg Warmers are in!

It seems like I have been seeing a lot of tutorials
on how to make your own leg warmers!
I went to my local Target
{as I have mentioned here, here and here!}
Long socks on clearence for $1.40
so I got a bunch!!
I found the easiet tutorial to follow here
So here is my take on it...
Cut off the toe and heel of the sock
{you will want to do both socks, but I just wanted to show you the difference ;}
Discard those or maybe use them for another project?!
Take the short piece from between the heel & toe
and tuck it in inward
so the two raw edges are together.
{it should look like the smaller piece in pic}
Then place the smaller piece
around the outside on the end of the long sock,
so that all the raw edges are together.
Next you want to pin it and sew 1/4" zig zag stitch
all the way around...
Then just flip the end around so the stitching is on the inside
and it should look like this when you are done!
So now you can have leg warmers for everyone,
just in time for the fall weather :}

They are especially great for those little ones
who are starting to crawl
for yourself when loungin' around the house ;}

  7. These are fun, mainly because you picked very cute socks to makeover! My daughter has been on a I will only wear skirts and dresses phase for quite awhile. We get the thicker stockings but a bunch of these would not only be cute but help give an extra layer during the cold MI winter! Would love you to join me at A Crafty Soiree, every Thursday.
