tutorialpin

I have a confession to make. I’m not very good at sewing. I love being crafty and making awesome things, but unfortunately they never actually turn out very awesome. I pin tutorial after tutorial and I spend a small fortune at JoAnn’s fabric but most of my projects end up disastrous. Luckily, I found something I can actually do – and it doesn’t cost more than a few bucks to make!

tutorialsocks

You can use any old pair of knee-high socks. I got this particular pair in the women’s section at Target, but they also have some pretty cool men’s socks as well that would work. You could also check craft stores or dollar stores too.

tutorialcut

Cut the toe section and the heel section out. You should be left with a long tube and a short tube.

This part is a little tricky. Take your long tube and turn it inside out. Then, take your short tube and fold it in half, with the right sides facing out. Then slide your folded piece into the long tube. You should have all of the raw edges together.

tutorialpin

Pin all of your raw edges together. Make sure your sock looks like this or it will look really funny after you sew it.

tutorialsew

Sew all the way around, (I used a zig-zag stitch, but I’m no expert here) making sure the edges stay as even as possible. When you’re done turn them right side out and that’s it!

Rockin' the legwarmers.

Would your baby sport home made legwarmers?

  1. So crafty and super cute! I am impressed. I tried to sew a baby onsie once and it looked horrible. This seems a bit easier.
