Well, guess who found some time?! I got a new babycarrier in the mail, so I plopped Miriam in and was able to get some handsfree time as long as I kept moving. A little dancing around the sewing machine, and I created some DIY BabyLegs!!

I took a pair of $2.00 knee socks from the women's department at Target.

Cut off the toes and heels

Folded the foot portion in half, wrong sides together to create a cuff

Slipped the leg portion into the cuff so that all three raw edges matched

Sewed a zigzag (tension set at length = 2.0, width = 3.0, slightly stretching the fabric as I sewed) at a 1/4 inch seam along the raw edges and flipped the cuff down so the seam was inside

And put them on my baby with her onsie that Aunt Sarah decorated for her!

Super super easy to do. Perfect for babywearing since their pants get hiked up so far in a carrier!
