~tutorial-leg warmers~

I love leg warmers on babies. 
When will there be any other time in a persons 
life that chubby leg rolls sticking out the
top of leg warmers is considered cute?
When I found out I was having a baby girl
one of the first things I said, 
"Oh yay! I get to make leg warmers for her."
And I have.
For every holiday.

I'm going to show you how to do it.
It's probably the easiest project I do.
You can make a pair in 10 minutes flat.

First off, get some socks you want to use for the leg warmers.
I use small socks for babies and knee high socks for little girls.
My secret go-to place for knee high socks?
The dollar store.
 There are only a few simple steps to follow while making these.
Here goes:

 I've got too many "the's" in there don't I? oops.
I also used "to" instead of "too"....this is buggin me
but I'm not about to go back and fix it.

I made all three pairs in 30 minutes.
This is one of my go-to gifts for little girls.
Quick. Easy. Inexpensive.
And most importantly.....super cute.  

My favorite leg warmers I've made my little lady
are out of some old vintage socks I got from my
very own sock stash. Go thru your own sock
drawer before you hit the might be
amazed at what you find.

Hi Paula, these are adorable. What a fabulous job you did and so easy, for you anyway. I don't have a sewing machine so it wouldn't be that easy doing it by hand. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris
