Make Your Own Baby Leg Warmers


There’s a new baby in my life—my 2-month-old niece, Domenica. I wanted to make her some BabyLegs, which are legs warmers for babies. They cost $12 online, but are super easy to make with knee-high socks you can purchase for one-third the price at Wal-Mart or Target.
This past weekend, I refreshed my memory on how to make BabyLegs by looking over the post I wrote on it a year ago. I realized I added an unnecessary step to make the cuff, so I eliminated those steps in the post. The new, improved post titled, “Cheap Socks Make Great Gifts,” can be found in the right-hand sidebar titled “Tutorials.”
I wanted to take a photo of Domenica in her new BabyLegs this past weekend, but she slept the whole time I saw her. And we all know to never wake up a sleeping baby, even for a blog photo.

Ah! I'm jealous - there is nothing sweeter on earth than a newborn babe!

That is a fantastic idea - very clever!

You're right - NEVER wake up a sleeping baby. That's the best time to admire them :)

They are very quite and I may have to pay you to make some for big fat baby because even with the tutorial I doubt I could manage. :)

Those are cute baby leg warmers you've made. Can't wait for the the baby to wake up so that we can see her in the leg warmers you made :)

I used the leg warmers on my little ones when they were babes, especially during the potty training days. Great idea Cathy!

I actually just made some legwarmers for myself on the cheap by cutting off the sleeves of an old sweater. I didn't even have to hem the edge, since it didn't unravel.

These are great though, and would be a perfect gift for a newborn.
