What materials did you use? A sweater and sewing machine

What are you most proud of? My husband had just gotten a pile of sweaters out of his closet. It is great to use the sweaters for the socks (up-cycling). I also found something I can make and my daughters will wear them- and they are unique! No one else will have a pair like them!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Look for any sweaters you have to use. If you would rather have a different color sweater- go to your thrift store and pick up one! Hope you enjoyed this! Cheri If you don't want to make your own, then write me at: cheri.curtainlady@gmail.com and I will fix you up with a pair or two!

Thanks! It was instant gratification- get those sweaters out of the bag and onto the legs! haha! I also made some solid ones too- with a cable knit sweater.
