Thrifty Thursday-Leg Warmers/Boot Socks

Thrifty Thursday-Leg Warmers/Boot Socks

“It isn’t what you have in your pocket
that makes you thankful,
but what you have in your heart.”

Remember A’s outfit from last weeks WIWW?  The legwarmers she is wearing were a very quick addition to top off an already cute outfit!  I was up in her room picking her clothes out for church when a pile of leggings with holes in the knees caught my eye.  “Hmmmm, those ones with lace on the bottom would make really cute legwarmers..”

And-they did!
The only thing I did was cut them off at the knee-no sewing involved.  Right after I cut them she slipped them on.  A fashionista at heart-she gave her approval:)
A few weeks ago after my big garage sale morning I came home and threw everything in the washing machine.  This was one of my .75 cent finds-
  I wanted to wash everything right away and then try stuff on:)  I got a little surprise when I pulled my new cardigan out of the dryer…
Yeah, really should have looked at the labels before I tossed this in the washer/dryer!  I really liked the colors though, so the first thing I decided to do with it was make more leg warmers:)
Just cut off the length that you want and then try them on!
Perfect:)  Check back next Thursday to see what else I did with the holey cardigan!
Here’s another pair of DIY legwarmers I made from a cream color sweater that I found at Goodwill quite a while back-
The Sweater is laying there in the middle.
Here is what I made with it..
I’ve worn the leg warmers quite a bit!

Just FYI-Goodwill usually runs major sales on their sweaters once the weather turns warm:)
Happy Thrifty Thursday!
