I just made a massive amount of leggings for the baby. Things started out slow but once I got going she ended up with 5 new pairs of leggings.
Baby leggings are quick and easy to sew, especially when you cut and sew them all at once. To decrease sewing time I recommend sewing with fabrics of like colors so you won't have to change your thread. I switched my thread three times and it added 10-15 minutes to my sewing time (to be fair I was changing two machines, my serger and coverstitch).
Another great thing about baby leggings is that they don't require a lot of fabric. You can make them using half a yard or a fat quarter. In fact, I used the left over black fabric from my Plantain shirt to make a pair of leggings.
This post wouldn't be complete without a picture of the baby modeling her new leggings! My little girl is mobile now, so she definitely needed leggings. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to see your work worn and loved!
