Baby Legs for my Baby's legs

Saturday, October 9, 2010
Literally dozens of tutorials exist to make these baby leg warmers, so I won't bore you with the fine details, but I finally made a pair for my L.L.Bean. She is a kid who loves the bottom appendages of her body. She is forever sliding on or taking off pants/shoes/socks. She unloaded the ENTIRE package of new socks for my hubby and literally tried them all on. (and in the process scattered them through the entire main floor of the house.) It was then I knew these would be a hit for her.
The only thing I did different from the tutorials was to use the leftover fabric from the heel and toe to make my own little argyle pattern on the legs. I tried to use the machine to sew them on, but I was stretching the heck out of the sock and I was afraid they wouldn't stay on lil miss if I kept it up. So, I sewed them on by hand. It took about 10 minutes tops. And now, for the big reveal:
The baby legs, on my baby's legs! (she's going to hate me for this one day, but they are just so squishy and heavenly, I couldn't resist!)

LOVE the argyle addition! I could just eat my baby's squishy legs... gotta love the chub! My oldest wore leg warmers instead of pants for potty training around the house, and they were a big help!
