First there was a sweater torso, which I cut off the crew neck and added a collar made from t-shirt material and a button placket from another sweater. After sewing on the sleeves, I wanted to make them longer, like wristwarmers sewn right on. I took another black shirt and cut off the sleeves and the bottom. Sleeves were taken in a bit and stitched together. Same thing on the bottom.

All you have to do is make sure that the "tubes" you are adding are the same diameter as the shirt. For more detailed instructions, check out my tutorial down a few posts.

Right sides together

Ooh, I'm toasty in my new shirt! It's great under sweaters and the new wristwarmers fit into my mittens, so no more cold snowy wrists.

I get cold wrists all of the time...I can relate. I have a sweater I am hoping to do a little snipping and sewing on to make some wrist warmers. Nice to see that my ideas are not alone.

Thanks for sharing, and thanks for stopping by my blog.
