Upcycled Sweater Boot Socks or Leg Warmers


Do you have any old sweaters in you closet that you know you'll never wear again? I have a few that I love the colors and textures of but hate the way they fit. 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!
