As I have mentioned before--I have a little lady that LOVES to wear dresses and skirts ALL THE TIME!!!
So as we are heading into the fall and winter months--we usually start shopping for tights for her to wear. But then I remembered seeing these leg warmers made from ladies knee socks--and decided to make some for my little gal so her little legs will stay warm and cozy this winter.
So I started with a pair of long socks. I found these ones discounted at Fred Meyer--they were around $2 and I thought the little ruffle would be fun on the bottom of the leg warmers.
Next I made three cuts. I cut the sock right before and after the heel and then cut off the toe.
Next I used the middle part left over from the foot of the sock and folded it WRONG SIDES together to make a cuff. Then I tucked in the cut edge of the long part of the sock inside the cuff matching all three of the cut edges. So it looked like this:
Then I sewed around the edge.
I used a zig zag stitch on this pair--but on others I used a regular stitch and both work great.
I did the same thing to the other sock and in about 10 minutes from start to finish--My little lady had a new pair of leg warmers!
She thought they were pretty awesome too!
They were so quick and easy--that I had to make a few more pairs.
I wonder if I'm too old for a pair?
