Bubble and Squeak 2

Yes - I'm using up the left overs again and making something pretty yummy.
The Sister outlaws are in studio sorting and moving mode. Going through the scraps I found our big bag of ribs....and got thinking....and playing..........and made some boot toppers and kids leg warmers.


You can dress them down....


or dress them up..
It gives the look of folded sock tops in a few colours without the bulk.

And the kids legwarmers look like rainbow brite legs!

Thanks to my friend Cleo who returned from her Christmas jaunt to London with the news that "boot toppers" were "in". Which I can well understand because I hate having cold ankles. I was thinking of selling these but I think I just want to play dress ups and wear them! Will show you a tutorial tomorrow.....promise... And by the way.....taking photos of your own feet is quite tricky!


  1. Betty Jo and her oldest child need some of these....<3 <3 <3

    1. They are surprisingly fun to wear! I'll pop in with a selection!

  2. I love the idea of these -- the drawback of the short boot trend is that they are just NOT WARM ENOUGH when winter sets in! And this is a nice easy solution to actually knitting leggings..... :)
