Thin patterned socks, or toe socks (i got mine at the dollar store).
sewing machine, or really good hands and a needle
Time needed: 1/2 a nap or less!!!! Heck you can make lots of these in 1 nap!! (aka 15 minutes)
1. cut off a 2.5-3" piece of the sock (if you are using regular socks, then this would be the section where the foot goes. just trim off the toe cap, and the heel, and you have the middle section to work with)
2. Push the little tube through itself, so that the wrong sides are facing each other.
3.Put the long part left from the sock inside the hole created by the little tube you just made. Right sides should be facing each other.
4. Once you sew the 2 tubes together with your machine (or hands I suppose), you may want to turn the entire thing inside out and then sew it narrower if your baby has thin legs like mine does....
Turn them right side out and there you have it!!! Your own baby legs!!! Almost as cute as the little legs you are about to put them on.....
Alternative way to make these: Cut the sock and just serge the raw edge. Done.
love these! i wish it was socially acceptable for 18 month old boys to wear them :) i need a girl!
She is the coolest dressed little baby girl I've ever seen.
love this! you're too crafty, Katie. i love the other tutorials you've posted on your side bar. I need a girl to make things for!
great post! she's wearing her bloomers. hoooray!
So cute! I've been playing around with the idea of making some for my little one. After seeing your tutorial, I think I just might go buy some socks to give it a wirl!
very cute! Thank you for sharing with me! Love the color scheme and ruffles you have going on in those pictures :)
These look super easy (meaning I should be able to do it) and great for a naptime project! Thanks!!!
Cute cute! I make mine by trimming a bit off the cuff - you can see how I do it here. (I'm terrible at pictures, so way too many words...) They are SO much fun to make, aren't they?
