Baby Legs

Okay, raise your hand if you’ve ever bought a pair of Baby Legs.


Keep your hand raised if you spent over $10 for them.


Yup, way too much.


(Now put your hand down…….I can’t see you anyway. :o))


I found this tutorial online to make them. Some parts of the directions are confusing, at least they were for me…….so don’t feel bad if you have to change it up a bit. I did and they turned out just fine. (okay, now I realize that my directions might seem so foreign to some people……and if they are, I’m sorry. Please ask questions about anything, anytime.)


Click here for the directions.


****Sorry, that tutorial isn’t available anymore, I found another one here.


Just click through the pictures and there are directions with each photo. If you’re not familiar with looking at tutorials this way……sometimes if you move your mouse over the picture, more directions will pop up.


Anyway, they turn out pretty cute…….even for boys. And even if those boys have chubby legs.


Why use Baby Legs??


  • Keep baby’s legs extra warm.
  • Make diaper changes easier, without having to take pants off.
  • Add them as another layer, underneath pants or skirts.
  • Protect knees while baby is learning to crawl.
  • Keeps legs warm when their pants ride up and expose their legs.


Okay, that’s enough reasons.


Love them.

    I was wondering how to make these just yesterday. So glad I started to look back in your archives you've got everything! =)

  2. Susan says:

    Oh so cute and super easy for this novice. I made some this afternoon during nap and already blogged about it.

    Thanks for the idea!

  3. cannwin says:

    perfect! Just what I was looking for, thanks

  4. Michelle says:

    Ashley that new link you posted does work, and the tut seems really easy! thank you for finding another one for those of us who couldn't get the first one to work! I've searched for this myself and never came across either of those!

  5. Ashley says:

    I don't know why it's not working. Try the link in the comment above. There's another tutorial there. It's not just you. :)

  6. JT42 says:

    new to flickr…how in the world do you see instructions?? i couldn't see anything but a picture of socks! i'm sure it's me, but could someone help??

  7. Ashley says:

    Hmmmm, I tried to load those instructions and they wouldn't. Weird. Here is another link for someone else's.

    Let me know if that one works for you!

  8. Michelle says:

    I went to the link but it just has a picture of them but no instructions/tut….any idea where they are? I got really confused! I have some socks waiting to be cut up into baby legs!

  9. Jab09 says:

    I tried to go to the site to get directions but couldn't figure it out. any suggestions?

  10. Devin and Andrea says:

    Where did you get the socks from?

  11. Laura McGee says:

    i saw at target that they have footless socks!!! this would work great for the older girls (2+) who wear these with skirts!

  12. Kylie says:

    I’m so glad you shared! I always wondered how people made them without a seam down the legs! An adult sock, duh!!! I’m so excited to try this! Thank you!!!

  13. Dalling Family says:

    I have made some for my girls from a tutorial I found…but this looks much better! Thanks for sharing!
