I did it and so do you.
As i said before I'm a big fan of recycling, reusing and transforming the old into new, therefore for this project you will need an old pair of your old leggings to be transformed into something new that your little girls will love wearing it.
Especially cuz its make with love by her mamma ;)
-old pair of legging
-pair of your daughter leggings for tracing the pattern
Once you have that and a bit of imagination you are ready to create a wonderful pair of legging; ;)
Keep in mind that the more customization you do to them the more time you will spent making the leggings.
Trace the pattern on the old leggings using your little girl leggings.
Now you have two new legs
If there will be any applique or any other customization now its the time to do it, on the wrong side of the legging pin and sew all along the leg.
Repeat the action on both legs.
My Elna model its pretty awesome. Yes i'm proud to have it and use it. ;) There are little things that i cannot sew with it.
I used number 06 for stretchy fabrics and nr 11, the overlock stitch for a clean finish.
Once both legs are finished its time to sew the crotch. One leg stays wrong side out and one leg to be turned right side out. the leg with the right side out goes inside the leg with the wrong side out.
Make sure that sewing lines match then pin and sew.
Cut the excess fabric, if any and then overlock. Once its finished you should have a brand new pair of legging for your little one ready to wear.
easy to do and cheap.
What did you do with your old legging?
How did you recycled them?
