Baby Leg Warmers Tutorial

I am so sad that I missed this trend with my kiddos! I think that baby leg warmers are so cute and practical, too. Luckily we have nieces and nephews being born. I found these cute little socks at Target for only $2.oo. It took me about 10 minutes to make these, and I am so glad I did. First I cut out the socks like this. Make sure that you leave the top of the sock intact. It will be the foot opening for the leg warmer.

Now take the smaller portion off of the foot area and fold it in half-right side facing out.Attach this to cuff to the longer portion of the sock. Make sure that you attach it to the raw edge with the right sides together. I used my serger, but I don't see why you couldn't hand stitch or use your machine.I was worried that I would have to explain what I had made to the new mommy, but instead with a little cute packaging I no longer have to explain. I made a hooded towel from THIS tutorial to go with it. The only adaptation that I made was using a towel that I purchased and cut up rather than the terry cloth from a fabric store. I was not happy with the fluff factor of the fabric store terry cloth, and my store bought towel was perfect.



  1. Darling! I just made a pair of leg warmers for my little nephew. I missed the trend have to live through my nephew..LOL
    Have a great weekend.

  2. This is TOOOO adorable! I've never seen them before. Now I need to go sock shopping and make some for my neice (since I don't think they'd fit my 8-year-old). ;)

  3. So cute! And there are so many adorable socks out there to choose from...hmmm, am I too old for leg warmers?!

  4. So cute, I love how you tied your packaging in with the blanket! What a fun gift to get and so nice of you to make it:)
