Babylegs

(By the way this is not Ian in the picture although he sure looks alike...)
Like if getting obsessed over wool soakers wasn't enough, I discovered leg warmers for babies. This seems the latest fashion trend for babies. How cool is this? you don't even have to remove them when you change your baby. A pair of cotton leg warmers will keep the baby's legs from getting cold during the summer due to the air conditioning, a wool pair is a most have during fall afternoons or chilly mornings. These would protect the baby's knees when crawling. And if all these benefits weren't enough, they are super cute!!!

Babylegs are only around $12 but I wanted to see if I could make my own. I guess if I follow a regular sock pattern it could work?... I also found a website with instructions on how to make them from adult socks using a sewing machine... Now, if I only had a sewing machine...

Como si la obsesión por calzones de lana no fuera suficiente, hoy descubrí los calentadores para bebé. Son ideales porque si en la tarde se pone frío nada más se le ponen al bebé para que no se le enfrien las piernitas y si hay que cambiarlo no hay que quitarle los pañales. Es la última moda para bebés aquí en los Estados. Ahora en el verano unos de algodón serían perfectos para mantener las piernitas del bebé calientes y protegerlas del aire acondicionado, especialmente durante las noches. También protegen las rodillas del bebé al gatear. Cuestan solo $12 pero me puse a buscar a ver si encontraba un patron para tejerlas yo misma. No encontré ninguno pero aquí me encontré un link que explica como hacerlas cortando medias de adulto. Ahy si solo tuviera una maquina de coser...

Oh, I love Baby Legs! I'm going to try Harrison's on him to see if they'll still work this fall, and if he doesn't like them, I'll pass them on to you!

I would love to have them if he doesn't want them! Thanks!
