Sophia has these adorable heart knee tights that she outgrew (or they shrank) that I just couldn’t part with. I thought.. why not repurpose into leggings? It was super quick, great results and you only need a sewing machine and a twin needle.
Lay out your tights and cut the feet off. I cut it right above where it started curving, as low as I could.
Install your twin needle and thread left to right. Top Bobbin in the left needle, spool in the right.
Sew on the TOP, the outside, so that the nice double rows of top stitching are visible on the outside and the zig zag is inside against the leg.
They’re DONE! Beautiful! 🙂 And she’ll get a little bit more use out of them before I have to donate.
