Baby legs are adorable. I have them pinned here and blogged about them here.
And about two weeks after blogging about them Westley got a little package in the mail from his buddy Parker sending him that very pair. What a sweet dude that Parker is.
After getting them in the mail I got inspired and decided to make some myself. Then I realized this would involve a sewing machine and panicked. Then calmed myself down and went on a Pinterest hunt for an easy tutorial.
Oh Pinterest, you always deliver.
I found a tutorial that I thought looked easy enough: Here is the original pin.
Basically she takes a sock, cuts it up and sews it back together without the toe and heal and voila! Baby legs!
Figured it was a good first timer project.
I bought some tub socks and realized they were long enough that I didn't have to sew two parts together I could just cut the foot part off and sew a seam! WIN!
So I got to work:
The socks after I cut the foot part off
I look much calmer than I feel inside here. SEWING.
And this is how the seam turned out. Reaaaal crazy like.
Or it's just that I am learning to sew and scream a little when I push down on the sewing pedal thingy.
Anyway, wonk as they are, they work! As seen on yesterday's post of Westley worriedly eating his first meal:
And that very pair of leg warmers in packed up in my suitcase to go to Boston TODAY to visit some awesome women and 3 sweet babes.

bridget & parker - from tales of me and the husband
molly - from mr. & mrs. rigoloso in detail
shannon & behr - from the scribble pad
I'll be honest, I am nervous. What if they think I'm lame? What if my baggage gets lost and I don't have any clothes or a car seat for Westley? What if Westley cries on the plane the entire time and everybody hates me?!
I guess we'll seeeeeee!
I'll have details next week. But probably not till mid to end of the week because when I come home I'll have bags to unpack and sleep to catch up on.
Okay, now link up friends! Show me whatchu got!
