There isn't much I love more than a good re purpose project.
Fabric and supplies for crafts can get so expensive, so I love to use things that I get cheap at garage sales, or things that I have on hand fo free yo!
Remember this ruffle skirt I made eons ago from some of my hubby's old t-shirts?
Or this scarf. Again, out of old t-shirts from my hubby's goodwill pile.
I made this dress from a pillowcase that my mom sent me that she picked up at a garage sale.
We had LOTS of free time last week during our snowstorm, so I cleaned out my closet.
I found this sweater that I haven't worn in a few years
and this camisole, that I got in my cousins Goodwill pile (she let me scavenge through it before she sent it off..thanks Betsy!).
I put the two together and decided to make some boot socks.
All you need is a sweater. It's a bonus if the sleeve is a little tighter on one end.
I cut the sleeve off just before it attached to the body of the sweater
I was left with these two leg warmers but I knew they could be better
I really liked the lace on this cami so I cut it off.
I pinned it where I wanted it on my socks and hand stitched the lace down
And there you have it!
Boot socks for free!
My belt? Oh, stay tuned for that tutorial later on this week.
