On Nnenna’s Needles #26: Legwarmers

Remember this feature? I’m bringing it back for 2012!  When the order for these legwarmers came in, I was super excited for my very first custom order!  It was a really great experience working with my customer and making these legwarmers for her nieces for Christmas.  Being your typical little girls, they all wanted the legwarmers to be pink!  Working with two different shades of pink, I tried to make each set of legwarmers slightly different so that each little girl could have their own unique set.  I just heard back that the girls really loved their legwarmers, which just made me squeal with delight! :)

If you would like to place a custom order, please don’t hesitate to contact me on Etsy or here on the blog!  As you can see, I would love to create something special and unique for you :)  I’m also hoping to list a few new items in the shop before the end of the month, so keep checking there too!

  5. So cute! I would have wanted these so much when I was young and in ballet class!

  6. Aww, how cute! They look gorgeous, and I love how you made each pair different. (I have a pair of cable knit legwarmers that I’ve never worn and I was honestly thinking about them just today. I never know quite how to make them work for everyday; clearly I need to watch more eighties films?)

      I love the look of legwarmers peeking out of boots, although I don’t have any legwarmers myself so I haven’t yet tried it! :)
