DIY ~ Warm Winter Mini

I've been seeing thiese cute mini's everywhere and the fabric was super cheap on sale!

Start by measuring from your waist to your thigh where you want the length to go to.
Add 1.5 inches to the top and 1 inch to the bottom.
So your adding a total of 3.5 inches to your length measurement.
Cut to your fabric so you have two pieces the dimensions you desire.

Sew the sides together.
Turn your  tube inside out and iron flat.

Then iron your bottom hem.
Roll and iron one half inch, then anouther half inch and pin as you go.
On the top, roll a half inch down then 1 inch down to make a pocket for your elastic waist.
Pin and sew leaving a gap so you can insert your elastic.
Iron all your seams flat once sewn.
To insert your elastic, use a large saftey pin and fish it through your waist band making sure not to lose your end.
Sew the two ends of your elastic together with a zig zag stitch.

It's just that easy!
