i {heart} baby legs

the real ones and those cute little leg warmers you can order here: official baby legs site
LOVE the idea of using them on my school girls arms at this time of year when it is chilly in the morning and then when it warms up she can take them off and forget them at school put them in her backpack.
however, having to be super frugal, the price does not excite me.

i thought to myself, "self, i bet that some super smartypants mommy out there has figured out a way to make them for way cheap."  i googled "making your own baby legs" and sure enough it turns out LOTS of smartypants mommies have figured out more than one way to make them.  i chose this way: ehow
note: i skipped step 1 - cause i had a pair that i never wore in my sock drawer, i also skipped step 6 - cause i am lazy and don't pin things when i sew if i don't absolutely have to.  (sorry mom, i know you taught me better than that!)
another note: the warning on that page cracks me up... reminds me of growing up and my mom would sew us clothes.  we would have to try them on with the pins in it to make sure it was going to fit okay.  ouch!

here are my before and after pics and "in use" pics :)

  1. So cute!! You picked the perfect socks for them too!! I don't know why, but I just adore it when babies are crying in pictures. Too too cute!

  2. Thanks for checking out my blog! I love this idea and can't wait to make a pair for my 7 month old. She has really chubby legs :-)


I {heart} your nice comments
