Transform Socks into Wrist Warmers

I'm very cold natured.  And I love gloves, leg warmers, etc.  So when I saw this post by Little Treasures to make socks into Wrist Warmers, I had to check it out.  I LOVE this idea.  My hands and arms are always cold.  Plus sometimes you just can't wear gloves and get done what you need to.  These are adorable and so easy to make.  Plus they look very feminine.  I can't wait to try it out and make several pairs for me and as gifts for friends and family.  You'll love it too.  Be sure to check out the original post on Little Treasures blog.  She's got some other great ideas:
  When I saw these beige - gray speckled socks I knew I had to have them. They are kids' size but that was exactly what I needed for this project.  This is a simple tutorial how to transform socks into wrist-warmers.

You need a pair of socks.  Cut off the toes part.  Turn the sock with the heel part upwards.  Gather the part where the heel is, pin it and hand stitch it.

 

Add a decorative button. Add some lace or ribbon.  This is important.  You have to insert a tailor's ham inside before you stitch the lace.  If you don't have a tailor's ham insert another pair of socks or a small pillow.  Something that will expand the sock. Then (hand) stitch the lace.  Your new, fabulous wrist warmers. These also make a nice last minute gift and you can make them in less than 15 minutes.














Don't you just love these?
