The baby is starting to crawl now... it is more of a wormy scoot, really. But if she isn't in pants, her legs get really red and rug burnt. While at the store today I passed a few knee-highs on sale and purchased one pair (PINK!) to make baby leggings to cover her poor knees while she crawls.
They are so easy. Truly. Like, really. There was a flickr tutorial out there that looked way, way too complicated for making a tube. So I did it my own way. These ended up being a little long on her short chubby legs but hey, room to grow, right? Plus, now she can share with her older sister! I think next time I'll grab trouser socks for the baby instead of knee-highs.
Want to make some like I did? Google helped me find a tutorial. Look here.
Don't have a sewing machine and still want to make some? Look here.
I think this child is going to be left-handed. Everything is done with her left hand, and left foot. She'll be the only left-handed, blue-eyed girl in our family. So far, at least!
