Winter Leggings

Somehow, someway, all the stars have aligned so that I could bring you today's post.

The first thing that happened....I pinned this image of these very cool winter leggings.

Next, McCalls came out with some new patterns and this leggings pattern caught my eye:

M6173
After that, Wholeport Crafts contacted me and asked if I'd like to order something from their website for FREE and write a post about how I used it.  Ummmm, yeah, I can do that!


And here's what I came up with!


 

Even though we're having what's considered a heat wave here, it's still FREEZING COLD outside, and will be for several months. I think these cozy, comfy, stylish leggings should come in handy.

It's taking me some time to get used to wearing so much pattern on my legs but like I said, they're so comfy I don't care.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the fabric.  It took hardly any time at all to get here from overseas and it's very good quality.  I've seen this type of fabric in stores and it's usually quite thin and 'chemically' feeling, not this stuff.  It's double knit, thick, soft, and sews easily.

Check out Wholeport Crafts for a wide assortment of craft supplies, fabrics and lace, and even baking supplies!

Would you wear patterned leggings?  Have the fates come together for you recently?  Leave a comment below~

*I recieved the fabric used for free however this is not a paid post and all opinions are my own.

I do not have words for how much I love those leggings. I didn't even know McCalls made leggings patterns! I'm going to have to go check that out immediately.
Thanks!

I want to make leggings now! Awesome idea! Did you use a serger or a special stitch on your machine? Let me know any tips...I think I might do this.
