|Stella modeling her new leg warmers|
Let me start off by mentioning, that I am in no way a seamstress or anywhere even near that. I took a sewing class in 9th grade and haven't touched a sewing machine since. But, I had heard that you can make baby leg warmers using knee socks, so I thought I would give it a try.
To get started you will need a pair of knee socks.
Cut the foot part off the socks. I actually saved the foot and now I have some cute ankle socks. The big girls each claimed a pair.
Turn them inside out and fold the cut edge over.
Now, you can either hand sew (which I did with the first pair I made) or machine sew the folded edge down.
After they are turned right side out, they are ready to wear!
I made two pair today and I think they turned out great. They were so easy and took only a few minutes. The first pair I hand sewed so it took a bit longer. But the second, I had my Mom do on her sewing machine and they were done in a snap!
Here is the finished product on Stella! Aren't they cute?! The best part, the socks were only $1.00 a pair! I now have 2 pair of leg warmers and 2 pair of ankle socks for only $2.00!
