Fame is one of my all time favorite movies! Every time I watch it I have to dance around the house singing the theme song. Sometimes I even put on my character shoes and do a little jazz dance! I can't believe I'm telling you this.
The new movie comes out September 25th and I can't wait. So what better to make Ethan then a pair of leg warmers! (Eli's going to kill me, by the way.) Janell over on My Boho Baby made a tutorial to teach us all how to make them out of socks.
I started with these:And I made these:

Are they not the cutest things you've ever seen!!! I can't wait to buy more decorative socks so Ethan can have leg warmers to match all his clothes!
A few weeks ago I bought this on ebay:

Scary, isn't it? Its an Even Feed Walking Foot. I thought it would help me when sewing pieces together on the edge with a zigzag stitch. Well, it helps keep the pieces together but my needle sometimes goes over too far and breaks. I've broken 3 needles so far. I'm running out! I've also been making washcloths out of flannel and terrycloth and it is too thick to fit under the foot. I'm going to keep playing with it but if any of you have used one of these and can give me some pointers I would really appreciate it!

I had never thought of crawling, Janell. What a good idea to make leg warmers for crawling babies. See, Melissa, he will thank you some day! Boo does need some of those! Melissa, you are such a smarty!
