|Have you all seen the the cozys around? Coffee cup cozy, soda or ice cream cozy. Well how about the leg cozy? I am a big fan of legwarmers. I mean I LOVE them. Could be the fact that I grew up in the midwest and braved some mighty cold winters, so legwarmers were always there to keep me warm and cozy. I still love them now, and I love them for my daughter as well. I mean who doesn't love a bundled up cozy little kid? So I made her a slightly different type of legwarmer. It's a leg cozy, it wraps around and buttons closed to keep her nice and toasty. Want to make your own? Great! I did actually up load a pattern for this even though they are really easy to make they don't need a pattern feel free to download it|
adjust the size as needed.
|To start I cut out the two pattern pieces. (I was using a really thick fabric so I cut of the curve at the bottom since it didn't lay quite right. Tomorrow I will show you another way that does use the curve)|
|Then I sewed buttons on one side. (the pattern shows three buttons but I only ended up using 2 since they are big) I also turned over the top edge but that is optional.|
|Then I sewed elastic forming loops on the other side.|
|Make sure you sew the buttons and loops on opposite sides for each leg.|
|That's it. Ah, doesn't the cozy furry fleece just look warm?|
|Wrap them around and button them in place and her little legs (or yours too) will stay nice and toasty all winter long|
