Handpainted Leggings

It's cruising toward the middle of August and here in central California it is still pretty hot outside and probably will stay that way well through mid-October. However, we are currently under the triple digits and a light breeze in the cooler evenings makes me long for autumn and the chilly nights that are so yummy! All you DIYers, why not get a jump on your fall/winter wardrobe and style yourself some dyed or painted leggings? Here are some handpainted garments that will get your creative juices flowing. [HINT: If you want to save some bucks and make your own, all the products you need can be found  right here.] If you aren't the creative type, by all means throw some love and financial support to these fabric painting artists.

Custom made by Hodgepodge Farms on Etsy these doily print leggings are made with a bleached-out doily stencil print in a lighter shade of the ground color. [Looks like a doily and some Tulip Fabric Sprays could do the job, too! I'm just saying.]

These aren't actually leggings -- they are thigh-high socks that have been tie-dyed for a bold color statement. Here's how to make them.
These super comfy leggings are from artisan made Blue Fish Clothing.
These handpainted Tribal Leggins by SiamicWear on Etsy are 'CRAZING' - that's crazy amazing!
