ARM-WARMERS – THE SEXIEST WAY TO RECYCLE SWEATERS

by Miss Bliss

Darling Bliss Girls,

I hope your Memorial Day Weekend was full of fun-filled memories. My man, our fabulous friend, Miss C., and I spent a lovely drunken Sunday at a BBQ – Karaoke party near Griffith Park. Since it was sunny with a cool breeze, it was the perfect weather for the fabulously sexy accessory, the arm-warmer.

Besides thigh-highs, my second favorite accessory is the arm-warmer. There is something so elegantly sexy about a peek of arm – just like catching a glimpse of skin at the top of a gartered stocking . That little bit of exposed skin invites touch, while keeping you warm on a cool Summer day.

AN EASY WAY TO RECYCLE YOUR OLD SWEATERS IS TO MAKE ARM-WARMERS!

Although I did not make the arm-warmers I am wearing in these pictures, they are recycled from old sweaters. Simply cut the sleeves off an old sweater and make a 1/2″ hem at the top and the bottom of the sleeve. Make sure to use a zig-zag stitch and to make sure you are NOT stretching the fabric as you sew (this will allow for stretch, while not making the sleeves “stretched out”). If you are worried that the top of the arm-warmer is not snug enough, you can add elastic or ribbon inside the seam and make it fit perfectly to your upper arm. With ribbon (like on the thigh high stockings pictured here) you can make it fit with pretty bows on the sides.

Feeling really creative? If you have three sweaters in the same color palette, you can cut the sleeves into thirds and create three sets of striped arm-warmers. Make one for you and two for your cutest friends. They will all be different but oddly similar – perfect for a fun night out on the town with your darling bi-friends.

A splash of color on the arms with a bold stocking color is truly the way to make your simple black dress stand out in a crowd. Besides, when you reuse and recycle, you are being kind to our environment, which makes your outfit even sexier. Don’t throw out the sweaters you are bored of! Just make them “new” and see the compliments roll in.

What have you made out of your old clothing? Share your sexy recycled creations here and inspire another girl to reuse, remake, and re-adore!

XOXOXOXOXOXO

i thought i already made this comment–but it musta been one of the ones that got lost like all the onesie socks in the univers…
CHECK IT OUT! a few years back i clipped the coolest little crafty project out and never made it–but it is the REST of the SWEATER after you cut the arms off and make your charming sexy arm warmers–and who doesn’t need arm warmers–(i am a ‘heavy wool sweater’-hee hee-i sweat in abundance–arm warmers seem a solution to layering up and down up and down!)
anyway–after removing the arms–you have a pillow just waiting to be stitched up–i saw some cool kickass pillows made out of old beloved funky colorful artsy sweaters–just sewn up into a square–and sometimes kickass buttons added for accent! –
so–OLD SWEATER RENEWAL REUSE REMAKE fashion for arm and home! cut the arms off–do blissfuls thing above–and then–wahoo happy comfy pillow–and give it to a sweetie if you had the sweater long enough that your scent lingers in it (hmm–question to go post–i wonder if other girls on here are one scent or many scents chicks-i mean the bought pay for perfume scents–ha ha) xoxo laura jane joy warrior
