I have a few pairs of BabyLegs for O & S but I found myself wanting a few more options of color/pattern. While BabyLegs aren't crazy expensive, the $12 adds up fast. I figured since I know how to use a sewing machine, I would put my (limited) skills to the test.
Here is a short, easy tutorial for any DIY'ers out there who want to make a pair for their little one:
1. Purchase a pair of long socks. I picked out a pair of both "over the knee" socks in the girl's department, as well as a pair of "knee high" socks in the women's department. Both worked great. This particular pair was only $2.50 at Target.
2. With a pair of fabric (or very sharp) scissors, cut the socks at the ankle.
3. At the cut, fold the fabric under to create a hem. I folded mine under about 1/2". Place a few pins to hold the hem in place.
4. Pick out a coordinating colored thread. Using a sewing machine, sew a 1/4" seam around the socks. If you don't have or know how to use a sewing machine, this would be a quick project to stitch by hand.
5. Find a pair of chubby baby legs to put them on!
