Keepin' Those Baby Legs Warm

Even before I got pregnant, I so badly wanted a pair of baby leg warmers. But first I had to get me some baby legs. Well, I have the baby legs now, but sadly Little Dude is not a fan...especially when the leg warmers are clearly for a Little Dudette.

Luckily for me though, my besties in California just had a Little Dudette.

Here's how I made these adorable little things.

Start with a pair of long socks. The length is dependent on how long the baby leg is that you're trying to cover. I prefer they scrunch up a bit, so I bought knee high, tweenager sized socks. 

Then you just cut 'em up.


Turn the right sides together of the foot portion that you cut out and sew on one side only.


Then flip her right side out again. 


Now, fold her in half. This is going to be your ankle cuff.


Stick the long portion of the sock inside the cuff, then sew around (the only difficult part of this whole project). 





Flip the cuff down and boom.


And my super compliant model, Little Dude, is less than thrilled...okay, so he doesn't look pissed, but trust me!




Try it. I did three pairs while Little Dude took his afternoon nap.
