You might remember the boot socks/leg warmers I made for my daughter for Christmas.
I love the look of these and who couldn’t use a little extra warmth in the cold snaps we’ve been having across the country. Here is the pair I made for myself.
I recently shared my Goodwill finds and mentioned that I also picked up some sweaters to upcycle into leg warmers/boot socks and some wrist warmers. I’ve only made a few, but there was some interest in seeing them, plus they are going in my Etsy so I wanted to preview them here.
Brown with an ivory lace and three pearl buttons down the sides.
Oatmeal colored with black lace around the top.
Black wrist warmers with some very pretty cream ruffled lace trim. A pretty button has been added to each side to “gather” them up a little.
I’m pretty sure the leg ones should be called leg warmers because they are open at the bottom and not closed like a sock, but I’ll refer to them both ways. Until I see how they do and get some feedback, I’ll be keeping the pricing pretty low compared to those sold by others on Etsy. I have a couple more waiting for some trim and buttons that I hope to work on this weekend, then I’ll have them all listed.
