Turn the arms of outgrown sweaters into legwarmers
Look at Brienna's adorable daughter! And those cozy little legs! Those homemade legwarmers are stylish, practical, and free:
With my 4 year-old daughter starting preschool and dance classes, I repurposed an old sweater she'd outgrown and cut off the sleeves to turn into legwarmers. I simply stitched the cut end. The wrist end of the sleeve holds perfectly at her knee while the larger (shoulder) end of the sweater is loose enough to accommodate shoes. This way she can get an extra month or so out of her spring/summer dresses & skirts. Plus, she loves them for dance, and it was a free, need I mention GREEN, solution!
