Today, in a bout of creativity-meets-insanty, I made Mia a pair of spider legs. They were so easy, I whipped out another one for Bram!
Here's what you'll need:
two pairs of old tights
Cut off the top of one of the pairs of tights, above the crotch. This will be the waistband for the spider legs.
Cut the blanket in quarters and roll each quarter up into a long tube.
Stuff each 'sock' with a tube...
Stitch the four 'spider legs' onto the waistband using a wide zig-zag stitch.
...and let the twirling commence!
And if you want to look especially fashionable and awesome...by all means, do not wear 'spider legs' on your head as I've done here.
