Pinspired: 5 Minute Baby Leggings + Sewing Endeavor

Ok, so I don't know if I actually saw this baby legging tutorial on Pinterest first or Instagram, but I knew I had to recreate Small Fry's 5 minute leggings for Theron Drake as soon as I laid eyes on their amazingness.  Nevermind the fact that the last time I sewed anything by myself was in 7th grade clothing class.

I already showed you the leopard pair I made from a Target skirt and ever since then I became addicted! I went on the search for more skirts but came up empty handed.  I decided to get some adult leggings instead and they worked just as easily.   If you search stores like Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe you should hit the jackpot!


This pair was made from a Target skirt [and yes, I know the seams are lacking any type of straight line, but you can't tell a bit once they're on!]:


Point proven...here's Theo rocking his Mexican serape blanket inspired leggings!


Of course now I'm scouring the internet for more leggings or skirts that I can turn into leggings for baby boy! I want to make some for friends' babies, too.  Basically anyone that wants them I want to make them.   It's my new hobby.  :-)

But let's get a few things straight: I'm not the world's best seamstress nor do I claim to have the "5 minute" part down pat.  But I do enjoy this little sewing endeavor and I even want to make a quilt!

You read that right.

I'm in shock, too.  In fact, I absolutely know I'm in over my head.  But that's ok.  I need something to let my creativity flow.

This is my inspiration and lucky for me she has a step-by-step tutorial on her blog.


I do know that I can buy this same quilt on Etsy and probably save me loads of time and hassle but I desperately want to prove to myself that I can do it and I want Theron to have this made from me.

It will be from my heart. All of its imperfectness and love from his momma.  I can do it.  Ok, I hope I can do it.

I can't wait to get started.  Like, I'm headed to Jo-Anns this weekend to buy my supplies.  My sewing machine and I are either going to be great friends or arch enemies.  Only time will tell.

Oh brother---what have I gotten myself into? Hahaha.

Have a sweet little weekend, friends.

xoxo

Those leggings are beyond adorable!! And no one else at the playground will be sporting anything as cool, that's for sure. Can't wait to see your quilt- you can totally do it! This post makes me want to go see something. :)

These leggings are so cute! And you can totally make a quilt. Honestly, it's the easiest type of sewing, in my humble opinion. And it's so rewarding to make something so "big." Feel free to give me a shout if you have any questions, too.

i love the leggins you made! the patterns are perfect! and yes i adore that quilt! i have no doubt you can whip that right out!

How did I miss this post?! I adore how you find inspiration in everything from a scarf/towel to pillow, bag to framed art, clothing repurposed to leggings...the list goes on.

Been loving your progress on the quilt on IG too!

Now, would you mind making me leggings from a fabric that will make my chicken legs look shapely & toned, like I've done hours of yoga/Pilates?

How long ago did you get that Mexican blanket inspired skirt from Target? I saw it there awhile ago and now I can't find it! And I absolutely loved it :(
