I know, that this is probably blogging for one! But, I will post it anyway.
The girls are going to start figure skating lessons this Saturday. A couple of days ago we went and bought each a used pair of skates. As this was enough money spent already I was not in the mood to spend another 25$ on skate guards. Then, yesterday it hit me: I can make them myself! Duh! And that's exactly what I did.
For kid's size skates (figure or hockey) you will have to cut your supplies as follows (2 of each)
Terry clothes: 4.5 x 11.5 inches
FOE: 10 inches
Nylon band: 11.5 inches
