When I look back at the things I've made and done during this pregnancy, I'm surprised. I've actually accomplished quite a bit considering I thought I had only managed to sleep and neglect housework. Thank you, blog, for reminding me that sometimes I do more than that.
To be added to the list are these hot off the sewing machine baby legwarmers....
I followed this tutorial....the perfect craft for a tired pregnant mama. They take all of about 3 minutes to make, and they turn out super cute! Oh, and they are cheap, cheap, cheap. Target had knee high socks regularly priced at $2, and then they had a few on clearance for less than $2!
I did alter things just a tad. The original instructions say to roll the hem over 1/2 inch and sew down the middle of the hem. I did two parallel lines instead of one. One down the middle of the 1/2 inch hem and one closer to the frayed edge. That way there's not a 1/4 inch of fabric rolling and making baby potentially uncomfy.
Also, I thought their instructions for the ruffled edge were confusing. It could just be me and my very tired brain. But, I tried them two ways. For the purple legwarmers, I didn't fold over a hem. I zigzag stitched a line 1/2 an inch from the raw edge, and then I zigzag stitched the raw edge. For the striped ones, I folded a hem; zigzagged the the top of the hem (where the raw edge is), and then zigzagged the fold. The last method was my favorite. It just looks more finished.
