My daughter loves leggings. She does not enjoy wearing jeans or tights. She wears skirts but usually wears leggings under the skirts. When we got to the point where 4 pairs of leggings had holes, I knew I had to do something. I wasn’t just going to keep buying leggings for her to get more holes in. Instead we patched them up with some fun shapes. So far we have two hearts, a star and a flower. I also just found another pair of leggings in her drawer with a hole as well so we may be throwing another shape into the mix.
The leggings in the picture above are a little stretched out because she was wearing them before we fixed them. Anywho…This is a simple repair to do. I first hand sewed up the holes to keep them from getting bigger. Then I cut the shapes out of some old shirts that I had. Pin them over the hole and sew them on using a straight stitch. They all turned out so cute! I only have a pic of the heart one but they are all equally adorable. Plus I love that it is only on one knee. How cute will this be to wear for Valentine’s Day!
