It’s feeling very “nesty” around here- on the blog and in real life. I don’t have a ton of energy left so all of my more recent crafty projects have been baby related, I promise I do other things besides obsess over my baby (not a lot of other things but some). In fact we have been swimming a ton, we went to the beach last week and we are getting tile installed in our master bath next week, yay!
Anyway, I wanted some more leggings to go with Baby Bee’s newborn onesies. All of the cute online legging shops have inspired me, but not enough to pay over $30 for something she won’t be able to wear long. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about supporting small craft businesses and paying a little more for something handmade. I will just wait until shes a little older so she can wear it for longer than a few weeks :)
I found this pattern online but the crotch to waist length seemed a little short. Then after I finished my first pair, I found this tutorial (which is funny because Ashley had the exact same picture that I had already taken, great minds) So, I kind of made my own pattern based on another pair of leggings just like she says and I used her tutorial. Its a great tutorial by the way, super easy to follow and very fast!
I even broke out my twin needle.
I found the black & white fabric and the red & white polka dot fabric at Girl Charlee. The colorful stripes on grey is an old skirt Ive had for 10+ years. I didn’t have enough of it to match the pattern so I hope my girl isn’t a stickler for details ;)
After trying this first batch I will definitely be making more but I will see how these fit first. Now if my model would just come out so she can try them on.
