DIY Babylegs

I was browsing Make it and Love it, which has an incredible archive of tutorials, and came across this tutorial for Babylegs that you make out of women's knee high socks. I was totally stoked because I have never bought a pair because even at Target they are $10 a pair...and I'm super cheap, haha! I was at Target and they had a whole rack of knee socks for $2 each! I bought a simple white pair so they would go with everything. You don't need anything but a sewing machine and some socks making this project SUPER cheap and it is so easy you will kick yourself for spending $10-$12 on Babylegs.

Mine came out so awesome and I stuck them on Bela right after I got her out of her highchair after dinner so you will have to excuse my dirty baby, haha! Babylegs are SUPER cute with cloth diapers :)


I plan on making a couple more pairs with a few pairs that I have that I don't wear anymore :) It is total crafting mayhem over here but I LOVE IT!

You can totally put them on boys, just find stripes or something gender neutral, they are great for under jeans when its really cold.

I know I'm late on this but the babylegs look awsome! I need to make some for emmy, its starting to get cold. I have some fun neon striped ones that would make super cute ones. I need something, I'm getting the "wanna buy more diapers" bug lol. I really want some booroi covers. I thought u were supose to save money using cloth, that's what I told Rob anyway hahaha!
