Torn Tights Get a New Life


I was putting these tights on Aiyanna the other day and somehow they got a BIG hole right on the top of her foot.  I didn't want to thro them away. Other than the hole they are perfect. She has a pink pair of footless tights that she wears a lot. we have wood floors and in thights she falls So I put footless tights and no skid socks on her when she wears a dress that way she can stay warm and safe. So I just turned these into footless tights. It's so simple. 3 steps is all it takes.

Supplies Needed:

  •  Tights

  • Stretchy lace

  • Scissors

  • Thread

  • Sewing machine

Cut the feet off the tights.

Sew a piece of strestchy lace together.  I made mine 6" long for each leg.

Sew lace to bottom of tights.

If you don't have lace you can just sew the edges using a zigzag stitch.  Make sure you  stretch it as you go so you get a pretty lettuce edge.

Actually for myself. I have tights that have a hole in the foot and I think I could wing something cute for myself.

I think this would work well with a pair that has gotten too short too. Thanks for the idea!
