Refashion: Sweater to Scarf + Leg Warmers


This is my little ballerina. Or some days she's a princess. "I'm sorry mom, I'm just a princess," she tells me with a shrug when she does something wrong - clearly this is enough of an explanation.

Anyway someone gave us a pretty knit, boucle sweater that was several sizes too large. Rather than save it, I combined it with some rosette fabric that you use to make baby blankets to make a scarf and used the arms of the sweater to make matching leg warmers.

Oops, I forgot the before pic!!


The leg warmers were easy peasy - just add elastic to the shoulder end of the sleeve.



The scarf was pretty simple too - just a few stretch issues as I was feeding it through the machine. On one side it's all the rosette material. I did not have enough sweater material for the entire reverse side and so added in the extra boucle to fill it out. It's just a little bulky but is sure to keep her warm and cozy this winter.

Are you ready for December weather yet?
