No-Sew Legwarmers

Are you in need of some cute fun legwarmers but don't want to spend a lot of time or money on them? Are you earth conscious and love to up-cycle your clothes?
Have I got the perfect project for you and all your friends to try!
Tie-It-Up!All you need is :
  • an old stretchy t-shirt with some elastic in it
  • masking tape (any tape will do)
  • and scissors!
Now let's Tie-It-Up!
Step 1: Place your masking tape along the sides of your "T", across the chest (the bottom of the neck is a good guide line to place it at, and finally down the middle (like pictured).
Step 2: Cut through both layers of your "T" using tape as your cutting guide.
Then cut it up the center tape guide (this will divide it into a left and right side).Step 3: Take both top and bottom layers of the left section of your "T" and cut each side (through both layers of fabric) about 1" width by 1.5" deep. Then double knot the top and bottom layers together (as pictured) on both sides! Repeat on the remaining pieces for a set of Rockin' legwarmers!!!***Note: Once you have made your double knots on both sides, gently stretch your knots like pictured.***
Done!!!As always:

Have Fun,
Be Creative,
Look Fantastic!
It's Your Time To Shine!!!
