This is my first project in a couple of months - I tend to spend summer doing things outside and trying to make the most of our short warm-weather season. But, I've been getting that itch again, so last night I busted out some of the scraps I have from chopping sweaters up for other projects, and decided to make some leg warmers.
The sweaters were felted before hand, and I used the sleeves to make the legwarmers - mostly because I'm lazy and sleeves are already the right shape for leg warmers.
Of course, I decided that they weren't fancy enough, so I got out the felting needles and cut some scraps into flower shapes - voila'!
I am thinking about sewing buttons for the center of the flowers, but don't want to go overboard....Advice? Opinions?
And the final picture, just because I think the pose is super dorky, enhanced by the smoking HOT shorts/white legs look (donning shorts was easier than rolling up pant legs...)
It was a good, easy project to get me back into the spirit of winter creativity. Thanks for looking!
