Girly Baby Leg Warmers

Ok First of all, I have got to say that I LOVE Baby Leg Warmers!!!! And there is a chance my Daughter has WAY to many, I have no idea how many but anyone in their right mind would a agree that no one needs more than 10 pairs of leg warmers, and she has way more than that (although I think I can safely say she has less than 50 maybe even less than 35...) The first few I made using a tutorial kind of like this one (couldn't find the one I actually used )

And now here is how I make my Leg Warmers. 
 Find some supper cute knee highs, and if they happen to be on sale at Target for $0.62 all the better.

Then cut off the sock portion leaving only the straight part.

Then zigzag stitch the cut edge pulling slightly to create a lettuce edge, I like to go around twice.

See how cute the ruffle look is!!! (you may want to use the other tutorial if you are making them for Boys or gender neutral)


Then put them on your sweet princess and try to go a good picture!

What should you do with the parts you cutoff...
why have yourself a pair of socks that match your daughters leg warmers, of course!!!

Baby Step 5

I am very sorry to let you down, and not post for a few days. I just have been sick/busy/discouraged, I started feeling like whats the point? Why bother, you are just going to fail, you are never going to be free from C.H.A.O.S.! Well guess what, My sink is STILL shiny and my hair is done, and my shoes are tied!

Baby Step Number 5
I want you to write down all those negative voices in your head telling you that you can't do this (mine are almost always in hyperdirve) and turn them around! Say something nice to yourself, something encouraging. No longer are you going to allow those nagging negative voice dictate the way we feel about ourselves!! You ARE amazing!

Baby Step 4

Baby Step 4
 "So far we are;
- Getting Dressed to lace up shoes
- Keeping our sink shining
- Going to Big Tent and reading messages
Your next thing is to write these things down on a sticky note and post them on your bathroom mirror and above your kitchen sink. This is the beginning of your Control Journal. The little notes help us to remember the habits we are trying to establish."

If you feel like you are ready to start a more in depth Control Journal go here
