Leg Warmers

5 Feb

FabDaughter takes a gymnastics class for toddlers and she wears a leotard and leg warmers.  I only have one pair of leg warmers for her which I bought at Target for I think $11.  I was just thinking about looking for some more leg warmers so she didn’t have to wear the same pair all the time when my cousin suggested that I make them.  She sent me a link for a tutorial where “baby legs” are made from knee-high socks.  Genius!  I picked up two pair of adult women knee-high socks at Target this morning, one for $1.75 and one for $2.25 and turned them into two pairs of leg warmers within 10 minutes.  The black pair with hearts was the first pair I made.  One is slightly longer than the other but you can’t tell when they are on.  The second pair came out perfect.  I can’t believe how easy it was to make my own leg warmers and how much cheaper it is to make them!

 

See, you can't tell one is slightly longer when they are on.

Here is the link to the “baby legs” tutorial on Stitch 7: Baby Legs Tutorial
