Baby Legs with Flair!

Okay, I know I have said it before, but I really do LOVE me some baby legs.  I recently saw some at the store with an adorable tulle accent.  I couldn't resist making some for Belle

Materials: A pair of women's knee high socks or little girl's over the knee socks, six- 2 by 10 inch strips of tulle, and coordinating thread.
(By the way, I bought the knee socks at Target.  They are on clearance for $1.  The tulle is from a tutu that no longer fits Belle)
Step 1:  Cut the heel and the toe from the socks. You will then have 4 strips, 2 long & 2 short.
Step 2:  Using three of the tulle strips, lie them on top of each other and take a gathering stitch along the top of the tulle.
Step 3:  Turn the long sock strips inside out and fold the small strips inside of each other right sides out.
Step 4:  Sew the tulle onto the small tube.
(sorry the colors keep changing, I was making two sets while taking photos)
Step 5: Stuff the small tube with the tulle attached into the large tube.
Step 6:  Sew the small tube to the long tube.
Step 6:  Turn  right side out and put them on some cute baby's legs.
