Let me be completely honest with you: I have some issues with baby leg warmers. I just prefer tights. For one thing, I like a clean look, so I prefer no breaks from toe to belly when I’m looking at a baby’s outfit. The other issue I have is that I am always cold. I have always layered up and tried my darndest to never let cold air dance across my skin. My mom used to tease me for tucking my pajama pants into my socks at night. But I wanted to keep my ankles warm! So, as you can imagine, looking at any exposed skin between leg warmer and diaper cover on a baby makes me shiver. I like to err on the side of overbundling my babies.
Except here’s the thing: tights are so dang expensive. And they don’t usually come in wild holiday pattern. But you know what does? $3 women’s knee high socks at Walmart. And that, my friends, is what convinced me to move to the dark side and make Princess Jade a pair of leg warmers.
I was astonished at how simple this process was when my friend Stephanie showed me some that she had made, and so I am going to teach you how to make some today. Don’t waste your money on ridiculously overpriced leg warmers at a boutique! Buy some women’s knee high socks and let’s get to work!
