Inexpensive Leg Warmers
To make the first leg warmers I cut off the toes from the socks, serged the edge, turned the edge up 1/2 inch to make a casing, sewed leaving an opening to insert 3/8" elastic, inserted elastic (cut about 1" bigger than her ankle measurement) and then closed the opening. In hindsight, I'm not really sure the elastic is necessary. Those are on my almost three year old.
Early in January, I headed to Target to see what I could find (the original toe socks were from a sale at Walgreens). The striped socks were $1.25 and the others were $1.40.
