Any idea what I created these beautious boho leg warmers out of?
Here’s a hint: you can make ’em in a few seconds with an item your tot has outgrown
Give up? Read on for the super simple answer & lightning fast how-to…
The cut off sleeves of an outgrown top (or onesie, or sleeper). That’s it…all you need to do is chop off the long sleeves & pop ’em on the legs of your kidlet – if the sleeves are unbearably boring like the ones above just follow the steps below to fancy them up!
accordion fold & twist up the sleeves then secure with a rubber band
chuck ’em in with your next load of stuff-to-be-dyed
once dyed, remove the rubber bands & voila! Funked-up baby leg warmers!
zip over to your machine & *lettuce hem the tops (*use a tight zigzag stitch while stretching the fabric)
grab a scrap of ribbon & a couple of buttons
make a couple of faux-bows & hand stitch them to the front of each leg warmer
pair ’em with some groovy jeans, golden shoes & awesome dyed-and-patchworked-to-cover-the-stains t-shirt and head out…
fancy dancin’ feet
and the sweet side view
munchkin on the move
so easy you can make a pair for every outfit!
*dig through your stash or use your own (or hubby’s) long sleeved shirts & sweaters to make a few rockin’ leg warmers for yourself too!
