Super easy arm warmers/ baby legs

My daughter wore these "arm warmers" I posted in 2008 the other day and got lots of compliments. I thought I would share how I made them again since they are PERFECT for this time of year. She puts them on in the morning and when it warms up in the afternoon she just pulls them off and throws them in her backpack.
When I saw this tutorial on Little Birdie Secrets (LOVE that blog!) I couldn't wait to try it out, especially since my girls love to wear short sleeve shirts even in the dead of winter.

It's so easy. All you need is a pair of socks (knee-high for baby legs or kids arms and thigh high for adult arms) matching thread and scissors. Just cut the feet off of both socks then turn the sock inside out and fold the raw edge over and whip stitch it. THAT"S IT!!

So cute and comfy. I have to make more 'cause my girls are fighting over them!

Now I can't wait to make some "baby legs" for the new babes. (The tricky part is finding boyish colors/patterns in a knee-high sock.)

I love it! But my newborn has such short legs, I bet I could use ankle socks lol. When she grows a little more I am going to make a bunch of these!

I've made these for gifts for my kids. They adore them and feel really cool wearing them to school. You are right, they are very easy!

Ooh, I could make those! I'm not so good at sewing, but I think I could tackle this project. ;-)
