Weekly Project: Baby Legwarmers!

For my first How-To I thought I would just keep it simple.  Plus I wanted to pick a project that even the most beginning of sewers could accomplish without too much gnashing of teeth and expletives thrown about.  Plus I know I'm a bit ADD with projects and can be easily distracted and lured into something else cool.  You could say I have a wandering creative eye.  With these though, I can have instant gratification and my babe looks cute to boot.
But first I must give credit where credit is due.  I first saw this project at Prudent Baby and immediately knew I had to make some (as is the case with most of their projects).  I love their stuff sooooo much.  They are some of my crafty idols.
Anyhoo, here's the tutorial so you can get your wee one's legs warm pronto!

First assemble your supplies:
Sewing machine, a pair of ladies knee socks, coordinating thread, bobbin that fits your machine, fabric scissors.
Cut off the bottom part of the sock at the ankle.

Fold the cut edge under however much you want.  I did mine like maybe a 1/2 inch or so.
Set your machine to the zig-zag stitch and sew around and hem that edge.

Trim the excess thread.  Now do the other leg.
Notice the Sonic cup.  I prefer to snack whilst I craft.

Now adorn your cute baby's legs with new legwarmers immediately!
Ummmmmm CUTE!
