Feature Friday - arm warmers for boys

For today's feature Friday I wanted to share something with you that Rex loves.  Arm warmers. You've most likely seen this as a tutorial for turning knee-high socks into leg warmers, but as you know, I don't have girls.  So around our house we use baby legs or leg warmers as arm warmers instead.

I wish I knew where I originally found that tutorial.  It was the first post I'd even seen in the craft blogging world.  I didn't know that such a thing existed.  I was so excited that someone would show me how to make something in a clear tutorial and it wouldn't cost a thing.  Funny, huh.  Anyhow, I found a suitable tutorial right HERE

Here are some that I've made. 


They're nice in this kind of weather since it's colder in the mornings, and then you can peel them off when it warms up.  Plus they make a cute shirt even cuter.  You've seen Rex sporting them in a few posts.



Anyhow, if you'd like to make some, pop on over to the tutorial HERE.  It's a great beginner sewing project.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I love these! I've been looking for long sleeve shirts so I can layer some of my little guys short sleeve shirts to wear all year, and never once thought of this! I'll be trying this one!

  5. So cute! I am thinking of making some and sewing them into Gabe's short sleeve shirts for fall. Then if they still fit next spring I'll just cut them out!

  6. I'm super excited about these!!! I just assumed he was wearing a layered shirt in those pics. I am definitely going to be making these for my boys. I was just thinking yesterday, that if I had girls, I would make all kinds of leg warmers. Now, I will just make arm warmers instead! Thank you for continuing to inspire mom's who are blessed with boys.

  12. From someone else who only has boys and is disgusted with the fact that you can only find cute tutorials for girls...THANKS! This is actually the perfect solution to the fact that by the time we actually wear the clothes I picked out for family pictures...it will be cold and the clothes aren't the warmest. I SO APPRECIATE your blog and your creativity. THANK YOU (And you were the first blog with the turtorials stuff for me!)

  21. I LOVE your posts about how to make cute stuff for boys! No one talks about it. Girls get all the good press. So, as a mom of four boys-- THANK YOU! Also, thanks for the idea on what to do with my old baby legs.

  22. I love the mustache shirt. Did you freezer paper stencil that? I just watched that tutorial. My husband has a really full beard and I think it would be so cute to make that and instead of respect the stache, respect the beard! Hoping you did stencil it!!
