Quick n Easy Baby Project
I saw these in my local shop. they are called "baby legs" they have a web site too. Anyway I thought they looked easy to make so I grabbed a new pair of socks which never fit my older daughter and cut the heel and toe off. Then just turned the foot section in to itself to make a cuff and zig zag stitched it to the leg part.
I'm a little bit proud of how easy this was. If anyone wants a tut let me know...

Her T-Shirt with the rocket is from Moo Bear

  • How to make a piece of baby clothing. Baby Leg Warmer's (Aka Baby Legs) - Step 1
    Step 1

    Baby leggings can be used as arm warmers & leg warmers for all ages. They make great baby gifts too. I love them as I don't have to cart jumpers around or fiddle to change nappies. Moo & Bear share a black pair while Bubble has 3 of her own. All made from recycling socks which were too small for Moo when I bought them.

    Step 1. Find a fun pair off socks. I am using Moo's old socks which have a hole in one heel.
    Step 2. Cut off the heels and toes like so.

    Step 3. Discard the heel & toes or recycle them and make a new project. If you think of one let me know as I have a few heel and toes floating around.

Wow this is great!! I will definitely be making some for my lil man!! It is crazy how they sell little pants for newborns, the waist is always too tight and if you're using cloth nappies, most won't even fit over the nappy. this is a great way for him to wear a romper suit and just keep his legs warm but his feet free (he is forever in onesies, so this is a great idea to get out of them for a change)!! YAY .... set your piggies free!! lol
