Back to baby. (Have I mentioned how excited I am for another baby!?)
I’m really seriously thinking of making my baby these. Is it socially acceptable for little boys to wear these?! Help me out here.
HOW TO MAKE BABY LEGS (LEG WARMERS)
When I first got pregnant and started looking at baby clothes (I started buying them when I was only 3 months along… I bought at stores with a 3 months return policy so I could return once I found out what the sex was. I KNOW I am crazy. But I was just way too excited about all the cute stuff I was seeing! Anyway, I happened upon “baby legs.” These are super cute little legging/legwarmers that are basically socks with no foot. Great for warming the legs and not having to take them off for a diaper change! Anyway, the REAL things are $12. That is just ridiculous. So I perused the internet and found a tutorial. I was able to get the idea of how to do it, but the images were less than inspiring. SOOOO alas, here is my own tutorial on how to make them! Enjoy!
1. cut off a 2.5-3″ piece of the sock (if you are using regular socks, then this would be the section where the foot goes. just trim off the toe cap, and the heel, and you have the middle section to work with)
2. Push the little tube through itself, so that the wrong sides are facing each other.
3.Put the long part left from the sock inside the hole created by the little tube you just made. Right sides should be facing each other.
4. Once you sew the 2 tubes together with your machine (or hands I suppose), you may want to turn the entire thing inside out and then sew it narrower if your baby has thin legs like mine does….
Turn them right side out and there you have it!!! Your own baby legs!!! Almost as cute as the little legs you are about to put them on…..
Alternative way to make these: Cut the sock and just serge the raw edge. Done.
