leg warmers

leg warmers

what could be easier to make than little tubes to warm tiny legs?

I just measured around little thighs, cut some stretchy fabric, and sewed straight (kind of) in a zig zag stitch.  Then I put them on and they played with string.  I love that we live in a time that we can just cut stuff up and leave the seam showing and call it a "ruffle" of sorts, don't you?  Now I'm going to go cut up some old sweaters and T-shirts to keep my babies warm this fall.

Cute idea, cute pics! Too bad leg warmers wouldn't go over too well with my boys....

I want to squeeze them. I am having a lazy day (ie refusing to do chores) so I would come to your house, pick up your darlings and let you craft the day away while I played with littles. How I wished we lived close and you just made things for me...a request that is weird on so many levels but you know what I mean. (PS I have decided to decorate the two older girls room here in our new place with birdies, around your two prints. I love it.)
