LEG WARMERS AND HEAD WARMERS

I fell in love with this picture…

I found it on this BLOG she also has an ETSY SHOP. She makes the cutest stuff and has two adorable daughters that she uses as models. Anyway, I wrote her and asked if she would sell me her pattern and she emailed me back and said she really didn’t use a pattern but she took the time to write it all out in an email. So kind.

So this is what I did with her pattern…

I made them for this reluctant model…

We had to bribe her to put them on…

But of course she wanted her picture taken…

She is not thrilled with them but I had fun making them.

I also made these…

She had a special winter activity with her school and when she got home she called me to tell me how many compliments she got from all the girls at school. Does a Grams heart good…

Those are darling. I suppose it is about time for leg warmers to make a real big comeback. My girls lived in them in middle school. You did a great job on them...and...isn't it wonderful that there are so many great bloggers out there that are willing to share their time and talents to help others out? How nice of that gal to do that for you.

The halves are hysterical. We have ONE half and I can't imagine having a second one! LOL Hugs-Diana

Your talents are never ending. I love those leg warmers and think I'll try to figure out how to make some. Although I don't have little grandaughters there are some little ones at church that would love them.

Those halves must keep you entertained all the time. They're just precious.

O my goodness they turned out adorable! And look at that sweet little model of yours!! Just precious! It was a pleasure to help you out by sharing my leg warmer pattern. I am really loving those pink leg warmers you made with the matching hat. You wouldn't happen to have the pattern of those to share? I would love to make a pair for my oldest daughter. Thanks so much for the shout out!! You have a lovely blog yourself. :)
