These leg warmers and heat packs will keep your legs so snuggly and warm. What's better is you'll get to thrift shop and sew (two other needs I love to fulfill :). I hope you try it out and help stop cold legs forever. After all, cold legs are just not that cool.
Step 1: Measure Your Legs
Step 2: Cut 2 Leg Warmer and 4 Pocket Pieces
Lay your sweater on your cutting board and cut two leg warmer pieces using the measurements you just made. If you use the sides or the fold of your sweater when cutting your leg warmers out, you only need to sew one side, or one seam.
Cut out four pocket pieces at least 3" shorter than the length of your leg warmer, and 2" smaller in width. Make sure it is at least 1/2" bigger around than that of your rice or heat pack dimensions, to allow for a seam allowance and some wiggle room to fit your pack in. (Directions to make a rice pack will follow).
Set aside two pocket pieces for each leg warmer (4 total). I arranged the pockets so I could have one pocket on the front, and one on the back of my leg- for total maximum leg warmth.
