Boot Liners with A Few Miner Adjustments

One Sweater...Three Different Projects

{Part 3}

Sometimes a sweater is more than a sweater.  It is warmth for your hands, a head rest after a long day, and something stylish for your boots.  I knew this sweater had to go.  It wasn't for me anymore. So I made a few Miner adjustments to it. If you are curious about the first 2 projects that I did, you can find them here and here.



So after doing the first projects what is left of this sweater?  Not much...just the arms and neck. I looked at the neck and said "What the heck can I make out of this?" A big fat nothin'.  So I tossed it.



The arms are another story though.  A love story, if you will. At first, I put them on like leg warmers.  Unfortunately, the wrist end of the arm was up by my knee and it was too tight. Ouch! Picture this. I am walking down the hall at school with a group of students when all of a sudden the circulation in my leg cuts off and I go down like a sack of potatoes.  Not pretty. So I went in a different direction...literally. I turned them around and made boot liners. The stores sell them for high rubber boots and they range in price from about $9.99 - $24.99. There is no foot in these though, so I will still have to wear socks. But I my legs have been oh, so toasty this winter.{LOVE} How did I do it? Here are 3 easy steps.



And there you have it...boot liners!



One sweater that I didn't like turned into three {useful} creations that I love... Mittens for my hands. A pillow for my head. And boot liners for my legs. What would you make from an old sweater?
