I was fooling around with gluing tarp this afternoon and came up with a good thing. realizing the best way to glue it was to bond it with heat, and lacking patience i gave up and sewed myself a pair of leggings. i went around my lower leg about 1 1/2 times and stitched on a coupla velcro fasteners. so far they keep my legs warmer and kept the pesky snow and sawdust outa my cuffs. the material is stiff enough to hold its shape too :)

I'm not selling them or anything but if you're tired of getting stuff in yer shoes, you might wanna sew yerself a pair :)

I just put on the Carhart Coveralls and the whole works is all covered up nice and warm! Leggen's are nice during the warmer times working in tall grass and stickers. Mark H.

Great idea ! Did you use plastic tarp or canvas?

I like the Carhartts too Willy but the must be getting trendy cuz the last time I looked for them at our local farm supply store they were way expensive.

actually, i used scraps from an old cheapie blue/silver tarp - used the silver side out, not that it would matter much. see, i like to stretch tennis shoe season and hate socks, so on my little trips to stoke the stove i like to keep bundling up to a minimum. this stuff's faster and more reachable than struggling with my clumpy boots :)

I made something very similar last year.
I use it on my forearms when I work with my rose bushes. I put on my good gloves then fasten those over my gloves up to my elbows. It sure helps protect against the rose prickles and also the poison ivy!!
