What was old is new again

I made a spontaneous trip to a used clothing store today (crazy, I know.) to look for some wool sweaters. I've noticed that a lot of people sew longies from old sweaters so I wanted to give it a try.

I made these longies with feet this evening from a $2 lambs wool sweater, and I think they turned out pretty cute! It'll be nice to not have to search for a pair of socks when he's wearing them... heehee

I'll add action shots when they've been washed and lanolized. And since this was a trial pair, next time I'll take pictures and post a tutorial.
ETA: An action shot... and now that I've tried them on, I'll be adding some elastic to the back part of the ankle to keep his feet in place!
