Leg Warmer From Old Sweater!

Introduction: Leg Warmer From Old Sweater!

About: I am a homemaker from India and always love creating something new and interesting!!

So this morning I visited my father and it's getting real cold here. He is 90 years old and prefers to wear his shorts at home, being in India we don't really have room heaters everywhere. So he was using a shawl to cover his legs while sitting to keep them warm. That's when I thought of doing this fast DIY leg warmer from one of his old sweaters. He loved it!!!


1. old sweater
