They are perfect for babies who will be learning to crawl in the summer time because they protect the legs and knee. They supposedly are great for potty training, although I completely missed that with Kaylee girl. (I think she's basically potty trained!!! There were days I thought I'd never be able to say that...)
I made a set of baby legs out of some ladies knee high socks. They turned out a little wonky. The next day, I found a pair of (real) baby legs at a garage sale for $2 and bought them just to check them out. They were a little bit wobbly and wonky too! Can you tell which ones I bought and which ones I made?
Pushing my perfectionism aside, I plowed through a bunch of socks following Everything Your Mama Made's tutorial. I probably spent about $12 supplies (socks) and got all of these to match Gracie's outfits. She's not actually crawling yet, and I'm not trying to push her. I just want to be ready. :)
The tutorial is pretty thorough, but here are my personal notes:
Women's knee highs = toddler legs
Kid's knee highs = baby legs
Women's regular socks = baby legs
Sew with the longest running stitch, then cut off excess.
