Last sunday i had a major making day and recycled some pieces for the girls. Apart from the swirly skirts these where their favourite as they had something they can continue to wear even tho they where originally to small.
Sewing machine or hand sewing needles and thread.
Cotton any colour you want
tights that are outgrown length wise
Select your tights, most probably they will be the ones that have been loved the most, dont worry if there are marks or stains these can be covered or patched for a more funky effect
Carefully cut the feet out of the tights ensuring a straight edge but as low as possible on the tight.
Now turn back the right way and voila!! your old tights are now leggings to be enjoyed for that little while longer.
