How to make leggings from your old track pants

DIY leggings from track pantsI love it when a DIY project is fast and easy! I got an email from a lovely gal the other day asking how she could make her own leggings, and it gave me the idea for this refashion. It’s fast, it’s easy and its perfect if you’re a beginner or have limited time to sew (which if you have a toddler like me, then you do!!).

How to refashion track pants into leggings

See I wouldn’t lie to you would I?? That was super easy right?

Plus since these leggings were made from old trackies, they are super soft and comfy. I’m totally living in these this week!

    OMGosh! I so have to try this! Thanks a bunch! I have some old trackies which I LOVE, but are not wearable as is anymore. This might fix them and keep them “alive” a bit longer :D

    What a great idea! I don’t think I have any trackies to do this with but my sister might. Thanks for the instructions!

    Thanks so much for this idea. I have been wanting to make comfortable, warm long johns at a reasonable price. We seniors always need extra layers.
