They look just like your inspiration.  And by the way, it made me nauseous looking at your finger!  And I don't normally have a weak stomach.  I guess that is one of my greatest fears.

WAY cute. I don't look so good in stretchy stuff... xD But maybe one day.  I almost bought that fabric for my sister last year, though... she wanted to be a mermaid for halloween!

i am trying to keep my foot off of the pedal when i am fidgeting near the needle but it is an accident waiting to happen. Must be hell to drag it out again. Oh and your leggings look fab!

They look great! And I second the question, "Did you use a pattern?" I love leggings, but always buy the cheap ones that get trashed after two or three days.

I did the exact same thing a few years back. The needle went straight through my finger. Makes for good conversation though Smiley
