I’ve been obsessed with BabyLegs since I learned how to crochet about a year and a half ago. Once I found out I was pregnant, I knew I would need a collection of BabyLegs for Dewey. (He will be like Lady Gaga- No Pants!) Although I knew I could hook up a pair pretty fast, I much prefer the look of fabric BabyLegs to yarn. Although I’m still pretty new to sewing, I wanted to find a BabyLegs tutorial and give it a try. I searched through several blogs, but I found musingsfromafrenchcottage’s instructions to be the easiest to follow.
I grabbed my supplies: scissors, thread, and a pair of men’s dress socks that I bought for $3 at Target… (I did not need the pinking shears.)
…Got to cutting…
…Folded the foot part in half and inserted the leg part through the folded foot part (Musings from a French Cottage does a much better job of explaining this step!)…
…And got to sewing! (You will see that I still have issues with my tension. I always get those little clumps of thread when I start to sew.)
I then folded the now sewn cuff back up and Voila! We have homemade BabyLegs for baby Dewey!
You will also notice that my pattern didn’t quite line up, but that’s okay. I’m still learning and I think the baby will forgive me. It took me about 15 minutes to make both legs and I’m really happy with the result. This is so much more fun than just buying BabyLegs. Plus, I also feel like I really accomplished something by making this for my baby. I rate this Pin (another) Epic Success!
