And viola... boot socks on the cheap.
**Tip 1: If you have wide calves you can cut rectangles of the remaining sweater fabric to the desired width. Measure the length and width of your calve then cutting from the bottom hem toward the neckline cut out the needed length and width. You now have two rectangles of the same size. Put "right" sides together and sew together on edges to form tubes. Embellish top end, stretching fabric as you sew on embellishments.
Tip 2: You can also use knee high or thigh high nylons and cut off the toe. Then embellish the top, remembering to stretch the nylon as you sew or glue.
