Toddler Leg Warmers

July 17, 2013 in Projects

One of my girlfriends introduced me to the toddler leg warmers. They are fantastic. You can match them to any outfit and they look oh so adorable! Only problem is I love to make them and my son has never been a fan. So thank goodness for nieces (and baby H. on the way!). They are simple and so cheap. All you need is a pair of girl’s or women’s knee high socks and the bolder the sock the better the toddler leg warmer!

SUPPLIES:
– girl or women’s knee high socks (I prefer women’s but that may just be because I have a large supply in my closet:))
– Coordinating thread
– Scissors
– Baby Lock sewing machine

This is so simple. Ready?

1. Lay out your socks.

2. Cut off the heel and the toe of each sock and throw them away. You will be left with two straight pieces.

3. Turn your smaller pieces (the foot piece) inside out and sew down the length of one side on each piece about 1/2-3/4″ from the edge(this will help make your bottom cuff of the leg warmer a little tighter).

4. Next, fold each small piece in half with right side of sock facing out.

5. Now turn your long pieces inside out. Take your cuff and with raw edges facing out, insert it into the end of your long piece and align the raw edges. I think it isĀ easiest to put the cuff around my fingers and then align it with my long piece.

6. Sew around entire cuff, making sure to sew through all three layers.

7. Turn sock right side out and you have a leg warmer!!

I promise it took you longer to read this than it will take you to make these toddler leg warmers. I wish I had a model for you but with all of my nieces out of town and a non-compliant 2 year old at our house who doesn’t like the color pink, the best picture I could get was just the leg warmers!
