Turn boring knee socks into something more fun.
I love to wear skirts and flip flops, but I live in a cold area. So, before tight season, leg warmers will do! These really only involve cutting, although I think I am going to do some sort of edging/hem around the foot and heel opening.

I am doing an overcast stitch on the raw edges now. I'm not the seamstress, but I think it should prevent tearing and more fraying :-P

I do this too! Though I cut the stirrups off after they started to curl on me xP It's a sneaky way to keep your legs warm under pants.
