DIY Baby Girl Gifts - Leg Warmers

With newborns, baptisms and first birthdays (and for no reason for Kira and Mia J), I whipped up over a dozen leg warmers the other night. It only takes about 5 minutes per pair using this tutorial from Samster Mommy and adult socks from Target. I also thought about giving a pair of matching socks to the mommas (Mother's Day is quickly approaching! and I could use some new socks haha), but didn't have time to go back and get them. Legwarmers are great for little chubby legs to wear under pants in the winter and under dresses in the spring. Considering we woke up to snowy slush this morning in Chicago, it's not exactly dress wearing weather yet. 
Instead of just rolling/folding them up, I tied them into little bows for adorable gift giving. Cute right?!
