I had so much fun taking pictures of these that I couldn't just post the one for the 101 Things Update.
I didn't take any pictures of the process of making these legwarmers, so I'll do my best to describe the process. Once I had the arms cut off the sweater (below the seam, so with raw edges on the sleeves), I cut down the arm (or is it a leg now?) about 4-5 inches on one side of the seam. I then folded the top edge and the edge of the unfinished side over a bit and used a zig-zag stitch on the sewing machine to fasten them. That way they can't unravel anymore. I then put the legwarmers on my legs and figured out where I wanted the snaps to go. I used two sets of snaps at the top of each leg, so there's a keyhole effect. Under my jeans, you can hardly tell, and over leggings, it just looks decorative. Not that you can see it well in any of these pictures.
And they complement my orange slippers.
