If you haven't noticed by my pictures, Blaine practically lives in baby legwarmers. Drives my dad crazy (he thinks they are girly) but based on internet reading, I can tell they are the "in thing" right now with girls AND boys! I'm not one that normally follows the crowd when it comes to fashion, but THANK GOODNESS I found out about these things! With the ammount of time spent taking diapers off and on and going potty etc, baby legwarmers are totally THE BEST! The first batch I bought I got from babylegs.com and I got a bundle pack (cheaper), but they were still $5 each! WAAAY too much for me and my frugal ways. The next batch I bought were off ebay and were $3 each. Getting better. I kept seeing online tutorials to "make your own" but my sewing skills are limited. I can thread the machine, make a bobbin, and sew a pillowcase but that is about it.
Well I saw knee high socks at Goodwill and figured, HECK I CAN DO THIS! And I did, and they look nice! I'm pretty proud of myself! I still have two more pairs to finish!
That is pretty awesome! I can't sew for the life of me. :( How handy to have those - I'll have to give them a try not that the Tucson weather is actually getting cool!
Not sure if you've seen this tutorial, but it shows you how to make a cuff on the bottom-- I've been making them for Liam and they're SO easy!!
I made the cuffs at the bottom! You can see them if you look close!
