A Simple refashion: Tights to Socks

A few weeks ago we were given a lot (about 20) pairs of winter tights for G., to join the more than 20 already existing around here that fit. But a few from these didn't fit anymore. That's okay, I thought, she has too many already (I might select some and donate soon), but I was really sad about a particular one. It was grey with little red hearts on it. Just like a shirt she has. What a perfect match it'd be. 

But again, they didn't fit. 

I first sadly put them in the doesn't-fit-anymore-pile, but I could see them often where they were, and it was like they were screaming to me. They wanted to stay with us, you know?!
So, of course I had to think about how to keep it and how to make something useful out of it. The most reasonable thing to do was to turn them into a pair of high socks, and eventually, that's what I did. 
And it was so easy! 


  1. Oh man I used to love these kinds of tights. What a great way of saving and reusing them!

  4. That's a great idea! Now I wish I wouldn't have thrown away/donated my daughter's old tights. Looks like I won't do that anymore! Thanks for linking this up to Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop!

  5. Thanks Carrie. Luckily for me I have a hard time giving away things I really love, so I always try to find a new purpuse first.

  6. Thank you so much for posting to Refashion Co-Op’s Refashion First Friday! What a great idea!
