These were actually women's extra long, over the knee highs
they would have been too long for baby leg warmers so I cut them higher above heel than I normally would
then I took the longer top part and the strip that I cut from the foot (don't worry, I found something to do with the heel piece, I'll show you later)
I folded the foot piece in half, right side out....
and pinned right sides together to the raw edge of the long piece
making sure all three edges are lined up
and sewed them together with a stretch stitch
and there you have it, cute baby leg warmers for a couple of dollars!
here's another version...these were just regular length women's knee highs...santa style....
so I cut them just above the heel and
made some festive baby leggies! Oh, and I even figured out a use for the toe pieces from the socks
with a pom pom attached they became a holiday stocking cap for "bug", Moppet's lovie! I made two because she actually has two lovies! I know, silly right but Moppet is thrilled when I make something for her bugs!
and the heel piece from the pink sock became a warm winter turtleneck sweater for bug...
just a cut in the heel piece makes a great opening for wings! Perfect!
check back soon to see another fun little project that I worked on today....
