Polka Dot Leggings {socks ----> leggings}

So is it totes lame to just make the same things over and over again.  Because that's what I do.  I know right?  So boring.  When I find something that rocks, I just like to use and re-use that idea.  It's what works for me.  However, it does make things a little boring if you read my blog because it's like, "didn't she just make that yesterday?"  And chances are that I did.

But in case you missed this little gem, you can turn a pair of long socks into leggings.

I made this pair for Madelyn a while back too.  But the little squish is growing, and like I said the other day, our weather is turning chilly town.  So chubby legs must be covered.

I picked up a pair of adult knee high socks at the dollar store a while back and sewed these when I had a free moment {or two or three} this week.

These hold up perfectly for a little "on the move" toddler.  Whether they're crawling

on their tip toes

or just laying around. :)

And if you wanna cover up the top, just put a little skirt over them.

Just follow my tutorial here and do me a favor, will ya?  If you do make these from that tutorial, will you let me know if it makes sense, because I want it to make sense, ok?

Ok.

Now Madelyn's all ready to be toasty warm this winter.

So that's that.  Have a great weekend!

PS  Am I too old to say totes?

Yup.  I guess so.

  1. I read through the tutorial, and it seemed to make sense to me. Also, a brilliant idea. I've made legwarmers from socks, but never full-blown leggings. I'm definitely going to hit up the Fred Meyer sock sale on black Friday.
    As for totes, it's a weird thing, but out of all my siblings and cousins, I swear the only ones who use the word are 18 or younger.

  2. Thanks for letting me know if it makes sense Maegen! PS I'm glad you could relate on the "totes" thing. :)
