Making Baby Leg Warmers (craft)

I thought I would try to make baby legs or baby leg warmers. I'm not sure what I think about them though. I have seen them before and wanted to try it. I WAS going to make and sell at a craft sale, but im not yet sure. Is this a one time thing or a keeper? My little chunk is showing them off for yah. Bad phone picture tho... Sorry. What do u think?

Padded Fabric Bench Seat (craft tutorial)

I was so happy to do this project because I haven't done anything like it so far!

8' long wood from Home Depot (have them cut it in two, can make two benches from it)
4 wood legs (home depot)
4 Metal heavy duty top plates (found by the legs and comes with the screws... Makes it sooo easy to just screw in the legs)
1 Drill to make a small hole where the screws will go, so you don't strip the wood
1 Screwdriver or drill with Philips head bit to screw in the screws
Quilter's batting to soften the look of the seat
Foam for added comfort... Makes the seat super comfy! I added 2 sheets to it.
