And a toddler who can pee in her baby potty without be naked. I *do* live in canada, after all, and I'm not comfortable with her going naked when its only 50* outside. The baby legs are great - better than tights, because I don't need to take them off every time she pees. And at 18 months, she's peeing A LOT.

There is actually a 10th pair, but she was sitting crooked in the potty and they needed to be washed.

They are fab. Loving all the funky colours and patterns.

So are these socks you cut the feet off of or knit fabric you sewed into leg warmers?

May our efforts reflect our values.
May the variety in life bring us joy.
May we seek to inspire not compete.
May we have happy hearts.

Very cute, and you can mix and match them too if you're feeling funny!

I used knee high socks ( either " youth " or women's ). I cut the foot part off... then I cut the toe and the heel off so i was left with a knee high with no bottom cuff, and a small tube of fabric ( the body of the foot ).

Fold the foot portion in half inside itself so the wrong sides are together and the raw edges align. Put the knee high portion of the sock INSIDE  this so that all three raw edges are together. Serge or stretch stitch together, making sure to catch all three layers.

Voila... The " top " of the knee high now goes at the baby's ankle, and the cuff you made goes around the thigh. Unless you have a super skinny baby like I do, then you leave em upside down so they don't fall off :-)

Great idea, I never thought about making these for my 2 yr old DD who has trouble getting the tights on and off to go potty. We are off to let her pick out some "special socks".

Great idea. I saw the real thing at the store this week, and though they were too expensive. I don't knit, and so I thought we'd do without. We live in Arizona. There's not too many days of actual winter here! Now I might make a few, just for kicks!

These are soooo cute.
No body in my family has thin thighs!
But you could put some elastic in the casing/cuff you just created and if they get too tight just open the casing and remove the elastic.

I have yet to meet a baby who was so fat and delicious that they couldn't fit into a ladies knee high :-) its just a question of where you put the cuff ( on the thigh for chunky sweetness, and on the ankle for cute skinnyness )
