Legwarmers Give Away!

A few weeks ago, I set out to find coordinating outfits for our family pictures. I found two adorable striped dresses from GAP for the girls, but they just needed a little punch of color. I'm bored with tights, so I decided to find some really cool, funky legwarmers. (P.S. Those ARE back in style.) I searched. And searched. And searched. The ones I found were either A.) Not cute enough or B.) Adorable but WAY more than I wanted to pay. SO... I came home, got on the Internet, and did some searching. Instead of finding a good site that sold them, I stumbled across a website that talked about how to make your own. I was hooked. And though the tutorial was hard to understand, I figured it out and loved the results. Here is a shot of Estella in her homemade, cool, funky legwarmers.




I have gotten so many compliments on them and have sort of gone crazy making the girls more and more. SO... I thought it would be fun to have a little legwarmers give away. I'll make this really simple. If you want to enter, leave me a message that says something along the lines of I want to enter, and make sure I have your email address. On Tuesday of next week, I will do a random number generator to find a winner. Also, it would be great if you gave me a shout out on your blog, but that is totally optional.

Even if you don't have a little girl, these would make great stocking stuffers. On Tuesday, I'll announce the winner and also tell you how you can make your own at home. If you can sew a straight line, you can do it and for a FRACTION of the cost you would pay at a boutique.

Here's what you could win--four different sets, so leave me a comment! I love give aways!
