Make some Valentines day legwarmers

Love, love LOVE these! :) When I saw these socks I knew I had to make legwarmers for the girls with them. They were a 2 pack at the women's sock/accessory section. K has decided she likes to wear legwarmers in lieu of tights. So I really got these for her, since they would go SO fabulously with her shirt. Find directions for making legwarmers from women's knee highs here and the shirt here. SO being that there were 2 pair, I whipped up M this little twirly skirt and her own shirt.
Here they are on a 5 year old.

And lots more pics of Miss Sassy who apparently was enjoying this little photo shoot. Makes me actually miss selling girls boutique clothes on eBay...sort of.
Here's a closeup of her shirt. I used the same idea as K's heart shirt, except I free hand drew this one and used the blanket stitch on my machine and added a button.

Later this afternoon, I'll post a how to on an easy rickrack hem. Maybe next week I'll do a tutorial on the twirl skirt...SO simple! If you've never made one before, give it a try!

AND I'm thinking of having a little Valentines give first! Look for details in the beginning of next week! :)

That is just too cute. I just made my first clothing item, so I am ready, girl! I'd love to make a skirt to go with my next one.

I am so excited about a possible giveaway! Really neat-o! Think I might try out some of the leg warmers too!

Also, I just found some tin gift card holders at Dollar General for .10! I bought all they had. They are the perfect size for the glass marble magnets you made at Christmas. I made a bunch too and used them for gifts for the girls in my Sunday School class. Thought you would be interested!

Someone just sent me over here to look at your stuff. I love your projects! I did notice the awesome curtains in the background and I'm wondering where you got them or if you made them?

Thanks for your comment. :) I did make the curtains. I used a Heather Bailey print cotton fabric.
