How To: Baby Leg Warmers

Everybody and their dogs babies are sporting the new fall fashion must have: baby leg warmers. I love them but I'm not going to pay $8-$15 for them. I found this on the internet.

The solution to my cheap thrifty ways!

I had an unused pair of fun tube socks lying around so I dusted off the old sewing machine and went to town.

Here is the finished product. Now I just need bugsy to wake up so she can try them on. If this works, mommy is headed to Target for $1 socks!


Well, Chloe bug woke up and tried on her warmers. Not too shabby for our first attempt that took less than 5 minutes. I'll have more to show off later.


  1. They look good! I'm planning on attempting to make some soon.

  2. Great minds think alike! I actually bought some for $12, then had the same idea! I even looked at the same site you linked to! They turned out great, can't wait to see Ms. Chloe in them!

  3. Oooh! Ladies, please post yours too! I love the warmers!

  4. You did a really good job and you chose the perfect model. She has the perfect legs to show off the warmers!

  5. Wish I had leg warmers on cold winter days. Chloe looks so comfy with them on. Kim you are terrific making new ideas become real and affordable.

  6. I want to try making them too, but I don't have a sewing machine. :(

    Anyway, good job! Thanks for sharing! :)
