In exciting news, Josie has been initiating using the potty!
In significantly less exciting news, she has serious issues getting pants or tights down in any sort of timely fashion.
Enter the legwarmer.
Now, she uses these a lot anyway, because it made diaper changes easier for me. But now they serve an even better purpose:
Keeping little legs warm in a cold house while a little girl learns to grow out of her diapers.
With out having to wear pants or tights which make it darn near impossible to get to the potty in time.
I love these with the pretty ruffled edge.
Years ago, I found this online tutorial on flicker.
They are incredibly easy to make. All you need are a pair of women's knee or over the knee socks, and sewing supplies.
This entire batch was sewed up during nap time. Including breaks because sometimes sewing the same item over and over gets boring. And the football game was on, so I had to watch a couple of key plays, too :)
