Legwarmer project on BurdaStyle

Check out the BurdaStyle blog today for my tutorial on spat-style legwarmers. These took me less than an hour to make and use up less than a yard of knit fabric. They’re the perfect project for using up remnants and buttons from your stash.

When creating tutorials, getting the final photo seems to always be the hardest part for me. I live alone in an apartment that doesn’t get hardly any natural sunlight, so I have to wait around for a friend to show up to take my picture. This week I was lucky enough to pull Mike from his books for a bit to photograph my legs. Unfortunately Gizmo also wanted to be in the photo, so many of the photos included lovely shots of her rear end or nosey mug rubbing on my legwarmers. Hopefully the final shot didn’t end up with too much cat hair in it.

  1. Hi there.
    The link to your pattern on the Burda Blog is broken.

    Could you please include it here?

    *And I’d like to know when it’s up please!*

    All the best.
