Sweater Sleeve Leg Warmers



I keep eyeing these leg warmers made from sweater sleeves on Pinterest (and on my sister) and finally decided to make a pair from one of Seleia's old sweaters I've had lying around. Start to finish I think it took about a minute.  I am almost ashamed of myself for not having made these before! You cut the sweater sleeves off and sew a tiny hem on the cut edge. This becomes the bottom of your leg warmer.  TA-DA! You're done. I've worn them about three times now (translation:every chance I get) and have gotten quite the comments and compliments. Seleia and I are headed to Goodwill this weekend in search of: OLD SWEATERS! We'll be pumping out hats, leg warmers, mittens, purses and pillows from them by next week. Who can't love something so simple and fun?

I love your leg warmers. All your sweater to do list items are also on mine - except purse - I never heard of a purse out of a sweater.
