This Thrifty Thursday I’m bringing you a quick and easy tutorial to turn old socks into cute little leg warmers, alternatively make them for yourself instead of the little folk.
You will need at least 4 pairs of worn out socks, then cut the foot part out, like this.
You then need to place them right asides together and inside each other, like this:
Then on the fabric edge, NOT the cuffs, you need those to stop the leg warmers falling down, you need to sew them together. You can sew by hand or on a machine just remember that its a stretchy jersey so don’t pull them out of shape whilst sewing.
I used a mix of one of worn out socks but you might want them to match. Once sewn together they would look like this:
Do the same with another pair and you are good to go!
My girls love wearing these, they aren’t to heavy but help to keep legs toasty when out n about and best of all they are total one offs!
The same method can be applied if you want to use an old jumper or cardigan sleeves to make leg warmers, simply cut out the sleeves and then hem the raw edge.
And this is what they look like on!
Perfect for little legs in the winter.
I’d love to see what you guys come up with.
