I went to Target today and found these kids Halloween socks in the front in the $1.00 bins. So anyone that has a young puppy that doesn't fit into clothes yet, or if you have a super teeny adult, this is a great idea. I just cut the toe out, and cut arm holes. Now Jadey Wadey has a costume. :D

If you can sew, you can even hem the edges to look nice.

Maybe this should go in the crafts section?

Great idea!!
Ill keep an eye out for some for Dahlia!!

PS--Have you ever tried doll sweaters for Jade?
I am expecting one in the mail today.
If it works I can see if they have more.
I have heard some mention doll sweaters, but I haven't tried them. The little sock sweaters work great for her, and they are real simple. She tries to pull them off if they are loose and bulky. :lol:

I can't wait to see Dahlia in her's! I bet she will be SO cute in them! :D Let me know how you like them, and I'll look into it. :)

Yeah, they work great! They are simple, easy, and they can't walk out of them, or pull them off. :)
Post pics when you get them, k.

I'm sure Wal-Mart will have them. Look in the kids section. :)

What size of sock did you buy for Jade? She's just a bit bigger then Paige. Also, how do you know where to cut the leg holes?

Thanks ladies! I wanted her to be able to have a costume, and this works perfect! :D

I'm not sure if they had sizes. There were a bunch of different kids socks in those $1.00 bins that are usually right when you walk in the store. Since Paige is still so young, and growing, it might not fit by Halloween. Jade is over 6 months old now. But there are many other patterns that you can get that she can wear now. I got a Minnie Mouse pair too that I'll show you guys. :)

I cut the leg holes about 2 1/4" down the sock on the underside.

Thank you ladies! I looked at a few costumes, but they would have been like putting her in a Halloween blanket instead of an outfit, so the sock idea worked out great. :)
