Use for Old Socks – Leg Warmers

upcycling socks

I have more socks with holes than without, and I can’t bring myself to just throw them away! My solution? Leg warmers. I wear these under jeans and skirts, to bed, all the time!

Here’s how:

  1. Cut off the foot of the sock at the ankle.
  2. Serge or zigzag around the bottom to prevent unraveling.

That’s it! If your socks are pretty you could even make arm warmers for kids.

What do you do with your old socks?

Very clever idea! I have plenty of socks with holes.
