1. find an old sweater or buy one from Goodwill // 2. cut the sleeves off // 3. make sure it fits onto your calf // 4. cut a strip of ruffles long enough to wrap around the top of your calf // 5. tuck the ribbon into the top of the sleeve around your knee – you need to be wearing it during this next step to make sure you keep the opening wide enough for your leg to fit through later // 6. hot glue the ribbon to the sleeve, or you can pin the ribbon in place and sew it if you prefer // 7. cut the bottom of the sleeve off about an inch past your foot // 8. fold the fabric over // 9. use a hot glue gun or needle and thread to hem the edge

I also made a pair from a pink sweater that didn’t fit.
