How to Sew Baby and Toddler Leggings_1

From the Blogger: "This is a really simple way to sew baby and toddler leggings! You can create your own pattern using a pair of your child's PJ pants. No store-bought sewing pattern necessary! This sewing project is great for beginner sewers. It's fast, easy, and the results are so cute! The leggings are made with cotton jersey (1/2 yard is plenty) and 1/2 inch braided elastic. They are sewn on a machine - I used a serger too but it's not necessary."

I love this idea of using a pair of other leggings as a pattern. I used to this with my kids and a,ways felt like I was cheating because I didn't use a pattern. As little babies, I would lay them down and trace around their little forms onto freezer paper or brown wrapping paper and make patterns. I feel better now knowing I am not the only one who goes for these shortcuts, and let's face it, it saves so much time not having to pin the pattern to the fabric and cut it. Thanks for sharing this nifty idea! Sweet!

Marilyn B I thought I was the only one who did that too. I hate cutting out patterns and if I need a middle size I am always trying to save the pattern for other sizes later so I have to fold the pattern all different ways and what a pain that is so I take a pair that fits and trace on some old cheap fabric for further use. It saves a lot of time and even if I have to pin it I know it fits just right. My grand daughter is 8 now and I will still do this. Put their name on it so you can find it easy. And after all shortcuts are great.
