DIY Legwarmers – A Fashion Statement for Fall

I loved legwarmers in the 80s not because they were a fashion statement, but because they kept my legs extra warm when playing outside in the snow. I was a kid then though, and by the time the 90s and high school hit, they’d gone out of style. Fortunately, they’ve come back with a sexy creative DIY twist from some very talented handmade gurus in styles you’d never be too embarrassed to wear. Plus, they’re a snap to make yourself from upcycled clothing!
Upcycled Woman’s Clothing Leg Warmers from cutrag
I found these super fun and funky, eco-friendly upcycled legwarmers today at cutrag on etsy. Made from recycled and vintage clothing, these legwarmers would look great with a skirt and boots and are the perfect trend for fall and the upcoming winter season! And, if you’re the crafty sort, you can make your own diy legwarmers from old shirts and sweaters yourself with either a sewing machine or just a needle and thread. Here are a few creative ideas on the web for making your own handmade legwarmers.

With the buzz of fall in the air and Halloween just around the corner, I was psyched to find this simple diy project for crafting your own upcycled sweater spats!

These wildly stylish steampunk inspired DIY spats are made by recycling that thrift store sweater – or any sweater hidden in the back of your closet that just doesn’t fit properly any more. The embroidered skull design makes them a great pair for a Halloween costume, but you can substitute the skulls for any embroidery design or even a patch and wear these through the fall and winter seasons. You can find the full tutorial for this project over at Urban Threads.
