Stellar legwarmers!

Legwarmers are becoming very trendry (so are many other things from the 80's) and they can also be a dip in the pocket, so why spend money on them when you can make them yourself?!



Instructions

  • How to make legwarmers. Legwarmers! - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you're going to need to have a sweater.
    I used one of my stepdad's old XXL sweaters.

  • How to make legwarmers. Legwarmers! - Step 2
    Step 2

    Depending on how long your legs (calves) cut the sleeves. Since I'm really short, I didn't use a lot of the sleeve.

  • How to make legwarmers. Legwarmers! - Step 3
    Step 3

    Then all you have to do is stitch up the edges or whatever and slide them on!

    I had to fit mine so they wouldn't slide off of my legs. You can also use elastic as well to keep them up.

  • Step 4

    You can use buttons, lace and ribbons to decorate the legwarmers as well, but I kept mine simple.
    I hope this helped!

Hooray for using old sweaters!

You can make hats, scarves, and arm warmers too. You just added a new thing for me to make out of old sweaters.
