Project 2: Baby Leg Warmers

20130111_095205 (1)

I’ve seen these adorable bad boys everywhere on Pinterest, and I’ve seen them for sale as well. They usually run around $8, so that’s a little pricey for socks without feet. So I found a tutorial here over at Baby Making Machine and she gave me hope that I could just simply hand sew these. All the other tutorials I found were machine-sewn. It turns out that they are incredibly easy. I used a very basic stitch and they turned out adorable.

I found some socks at my friendly neighborhood Walgreens at $4 a pair, so I ended up spending half of what I would have if I had bought them already made, but I know I could spend even less.

All I did was cut off the foot part of the socks above the ankle.

(And ended up throwing this part in my sock basket. Bonus crew socks ftw!)

And then folded down the cut edge and used a basic hand stitch all the way around.

This was the adorable outcome:

I love them, they work great for my little crawler and they are so much easier than messing with pants at home.

Success!

Project 3 has yet to be chosen, I’ll get to looking tonight and see what I want to do next.
