Cuffergirls

It’s rare that I can begin a project and see it through to the end in one day but this past Tuesday, I did just that.  I’ve had some thigh-high womens’ socks in my “to sew” pile for a year now and finally got around to refashioning them into…IMG_8244…boot cuffs for the littlebig girls.
(PS, grandma got the girls these boots I was all heart-eyed over and they are just as cute and deserving of that emoji in person.  So, in case you’re in the market for some toddler booties, I highly recommend these!  They’re linked towards the end of the post!)

It took me about ten minutes total to grab the socks,

cut each shaft into two equal lengths (which, by the way, leaves mama with a pair of crew cuts),

and serge the unfinished ends.
IMG_1280Don’t have a serger?  Just sew a zig-zag stitch around the ends.  No sewing machine?  Grab some matching thread and sew a quick whip stitch around the top edge.  Don’t worry about perfection.  Worn, they’re scrunched up anyway so no one will be able to critique your whipping.

When the air down here eventually dips below sweltering during the day (November, here’s looking at you), the girls will actually don them outside for longer than a two-minute photo sesh.

Someone was not about to be left out of picture-taking…

Eat him up.

  1. What! Where did your little girls go? Surely they can't be 10 already! :P

    1. I know! :( Funny because I think a lot about the direction that toddler fashion is going these days and sometimes I feel like it's making kids look so grown up...they're basically dressing in adult styles in miniature. :) It's all cute and everything and I'm guilty of it but it's also kinda sad too, right?
