Pinspiration Project ~ Dinosaur Legwarmers

My daughter's best friend just turned 3 and loves dinosaurs, so when I saw this pin I knew I'd have to make some of these for her for her birthday.

Original Post - Happy Together

Here's my quick overview in pics of how I did it.
This little girl is tiny and I knew I wouldn't be able to find toddler knee socks in a hurry so I bought some cheap women's socks at Target and chopped off the foot. So instead of socks these are arm/legwarmers.

Then I cut up the back center fold.

Open it and lay it flat. Turn up bottom, freshly cut, edge and press and sew.

I just copied the shape of spikes from the original blogger and cut out 24. 12 for each pair of socks. Then I laid them out on the right side edge of each sock... on the right side of fabric.

Pin in place.

Fold sock in half wrong side out, right sides together, and I pinned in place so nothing would shift when I sewed. Then I used an over-locking stitch and sewed the edge closed, and I used a 1/2 inch seam allowance so I could make sure to catch all the spikes.

Turn right side out and you're done!

Here are the two pairs I made for our little friend.

I also made her this t-shirt to round out the look using a freezer paper stencil.

Our friend LOVED her gift. We went out today and she was wearing the shirt, and a set of leg warmers on her legs and the other set on her arms. My daughter was really excited to watch me make all this as I told her it was a present for her friend. I've never seen her more excited to watch someone else open a present.

Pin It!
