I am obsessed with Baby Legs but $12 footless baby socks aren't exactly in the budget right now. So when I found these awesome Animal/Muppets knee socks on clearance at Target this weekend, I knew it was time to finally try making some Baby Legs of my own. It was seriously so easy, and they turned out really cute, so I figured I'd share!
Start with a pair of adult knee socks. Target has a bunch on sale for like $1.50 right now in super fun colors and patterns. I bought all mine in the women's section because I don't mind a little pink on my guy, but you could check the men's socks if you want something manlier I suppose :)
Next cut straight across the sock, right above the heel:
You could save the bottom parts of the socks to make crew socks out of, or if you're weird like my husband, you can use them as gangsta baby hats:
Anyway, next you flip the sock tubes inside out and fold them over to make a cuff at the bottom:
Then sew a hem around the bottom:
Flip them back right side out, and you're done!
If you want the bottoms to be tighter around the ankle, you could sew some thin elastic into the cuff, too.
How cute are they on my boy??
I'm like the worst seamstress in the world and even I couldn't mess this project up. And the best part is I was able to whip up a pair in under 10 minutes! Cheap, cute, and fast? You must give it a try :)
Have a great week everyone!
