Baby Legs

I first learned about baby legs when we received a pair as a gift for Samantha.  Once I learned what they were, I was in LOVE.  I wanted at least 20 pairs, I loved that they grow with you, I love how cozy they look, I love how easy diaper changes are with them, I love how warm they are, I love that her and Kaitlyn can share them, I just LOVE them.  What I don't love is that they can be upwards of $10 a pair.  And when you want one for every onsie, t-shirt and cloth diaper that can get to be a lot.  Before even searching them out, I knew I wanted a whole drawer dedicated to baby legs.

I just won a lot of 10 on ebay and am anxiously awaiting their arrival.  I had heard they were fairly easy to make, but I've been lazy for the past year about actually getting out my sewing machine.  This morning, I did and I am so glad!

In less than 10 minutes, with a 2 month old sitting next to me in her chair, I made 3 pairs.  They cost about $1.25 a pair.  How in the world can I beat that?  Plus, I love that because they are so inexpensive I can make coordinating ones so we can mix and match them!  Now, I'm going to work on matching hair accessories.  And of course get started on making some more!

So, here is my first attempt at Baby Legs:

My model, and inspiration to be crafty lately was ready for a nap, so I haven't been able to put them on her yet!

Bought them off of Etsy for Brookie right after she was born :) I think they are lavender, grey, white and black... They rocked while she was learning to crawl :)
