I have this new sewing project that I would like to share with you. I will be making an arm and leg warmer for baby/toddler. It is convenient and it makes for a very easy diaper change. Moreover, I made them out of a pair of socks I got from a dollar store instead of buying them on baby boutique stores which would probably cost me around 12-20 dollars. So, if you have a sewing machine, a pair of socks, and a pair of scissors, then you could make your own.
What I did is cut the sock into two while getting rid of the toe and heel part. As a result, you have one shorter fabric and a longer one. Then, on the shorter fabric, push one end on the inside where the wrong sides are touching until both raw edges align. Insert the raw edge of the longer fabric inside this, but going through the folded edge, then align with the two raw edges previously. Basically, what you have are the 3 raw edges aligned. After that, straight stitch the fabric layers together. Now, if you don’t have a serge to finish off the edges, then you can just trim it away carefully by not cutting through the stitch. Lastly, just flip the shorter fabric, and there you go, your arm and leg warmer for baby/toddler.
