American Frugal Housewife

I have finally come up with a good blog for Joanne's Frugal Housewife Button. I am enjoying my other friend Beckie's last days of pregnancy projects...and was inspired by her baby legs post.

I followed this tute...and now you can follow mine...

Use rotary cutter to cut feet off of knee socks.

Make sure they are even.

Turn them inside out...and fold down a small hem.

Whip stitch hem.

Isn't she adorable!!!

Stripedly gorgeous!!!
SOOOO, then I was thinking..."Hey, I could make these feet into footie socks!" Which makes this qualify as a Frugal Housewife entry!
Used some leftover scrapbook paper scraps to trace feet...cuz I didn't have posterboard.

Used bubble paint to mark the bottoms...cutely for Valentine's...Awww!

Later, they worked quite well! If I had pom-poms I would have attached one to each heel...cuz it reminds me of my Mommy!
Proverbs 31: 21-26, "She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household is clothed with scarlet. She makes tapestry for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, When he sits among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, And supplies sashes for the merchants. Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness."

Such a great idea! I love it! I'm seeing little legwarmers for my niece for Christmas--and for my own girls too!
