Wear Baby Leg Warmers as Boot Socks

Little Big Fan Leg Warmers

  Looking for the perfect boot sock to wear this winter?  I've been stealing borrowing my daughters leg warmers to wear to football games.  We have an adorable pair of University of Georgia leg warmers by Little Big Fan in red with the Georgia "G" on them.  Here is how I wore them today in Athens: You could also wear them on your arms with a short sleeve t-shirt.  Or you could let your kids wear them (both boys and girls).  I think I need to get a few more pair so my daughter and I can both wear them on game day.

Upcycled Sweater Boot Socks or Leg Warmers

The hot trend last fall was to make boot socks and leg warmers from old sweaters. The project is incredible easy and even a novice seamstress like myself can complete it in about 15 minutes. Directions: Cut the sleeves off of the sweater as close to the top as you can. Pin and sew a 1/2" hem around the cut edge. That's it! This sweater was tapered at the wrist so I had to slit the sleeve at that end. I sewed a straight stitch to keep it from unraveling. This would be a fun project for kids sweaters too! I think I'm going to have to make Lil' B her own pair for Fall. Note: This entire post was done from my iPhone, even the photographs!
