Yesterday took Boston outside and her feet and legs were freezing I realized that the skirt routine was no longer working for us. At that moment I remembered something that my friend Becky does for her little girl. She makes footless baby tights from knee high socks and just my luck our tiny little Walmart finally had some cute ones. I was amazed how quickly this project went I made like 7 pairs in 30 minutes. Want to see?
|1. start with cute knee length socks. 2. cut the toes off. 3. cut a line down the middle|
Now zig stitch (or if you have a serger, use it) from the top of the toe to the bottom of the heel and up to the other toe. Now in my case the socks were small enough they will stay on Boston without any further finishing but if you are wanting a more finished look to the top it is a choose your own adventure scenario: attach elastic to the top, fold over top and finish with double needle, or fold over and run a row of elastic thread on the bottom.
