Here's how to upcycle a sweater's sleeves into boot socks. I chose this sweater because the ruffles don't sit correctly on me when I wear it as a cardigan, but the sleeve ruffle will be great for the top of a boot sock.

Step 1: Gather your supplies

This is a project that needs few supplies. Gather:
1. The donor sweater
2. Coordinating thread
3. Seam ripper
4. Hand sewing needle
5. Straight pins or safety pins
6. Material of your choice for the soles of the socks ( I used small men's socks folded over.)
