Item: Leg Warmers for Babies (with optional bow or hat and bracelet)
Company: MD Designs
Website: MD Designs
Contact: Melanie

I think you will love these. Melanie creates these kits for babies and toddlers. For boys, you will get some leg warmers and a matching crocheted hat. For the girls, you get leg warmers, a matching headband/bow combination, and a matching bracelet. You can also buy leg warmers alone. Here is Melanie’s story:

“These little leg warmer kits came about when my sister introduced me to a great tutorial on how to make leg warmers from socks. I ran to my stash and cut up anything I thought I could spare. Now every time I go to a store I have to check out their sock selection. My husband teases me about it, but I can’t help it. I’m addicted to socks!


But I couldn’t stop with just socks. I decided that my daughter also needed a matching bow and bracelet to go with her super cute leg warmers. She wears them quite often and always gets compliments on how cute she looks. People kept telling me that I should sell my kits. I thought that was a pretty good idea since my little girl has a ton of these kits already and I keep wanting to make more! 🙂

So I started an Etsy site to try and sell my stuff. It’s fun to be able to make as many of these as I want knowing that somebody out there will fall in love with them. Hopefully you guys will enjoy these kits as much as I have.”

I have to tell you that Melanie is my sister-in-law, but I think you will agree that her stuff is adorable no matter who she is related to :). Since I know her personally, I can tell you that she is definitely honest and you can trust her completely. I also know how amazingly crafty she is–your products will be quality. She is a hard worker who will put as much time and effort into making your prodcuts as she would her own.

Now, on to the great news, Melanie is doing not only a giveaway, but also a discount!

The winner of the giveaway will win one free kit! Shipping will be free to US winners. Winners outside the US will need to pay for shipping.

And I know it is sad when you don’t win, but you can still have reason to rejoice if you don’t. Melanie is offering a discount. Save $10 when you buy 2 kits and/or 2 leg warmers for $10 (instead of 7.50 each). That is a great deal. All you have to do is mention you saw these kits on this site. Please note, Melanie says to wait and pay after she sends you a corrected invoice so she doesn’t have to refund your money. She thinks through the refund, PayPal might charge you to accept the money.

    I LOVE your products! I am obsessed with baby leg warmers. My sweetheart has super long legs making pants too short or too loose in the waist. Leg warmers are the perfect solution. Your prices are better than I have found other places AND you have a great variety! My favorite are the purple and white floral. Love the onesie and bracelet. Your LO is beautiful in the pictures. Love the one where she is checking out her bracelet. On another note, thanks so much for publishing these great products on your blog. I am enjoying the series.
