As I'm sure we all know, winter is up on us whether you like it or not! So for this weeks DIY I wanted to combine my love for turning old things into new ones and as well as my love for fall / winter! The result? Some fabulously cute and

warm

leg warmers!

Also make sure to measure the length of your leg (how long you want your leg warmers) *Also add a few extra inches for seam allowance and so they aren't so tight!

You MUST sew with a zig zag stitch this prevents your material from fraying!
