Using Cut Off Pant Legs

My 7 year old is a little larger than average around his waist, so I have to buy pants that are to long for him in order to get ones that will fit him around his waist, and end up cutting and hemming them for a better fit. I use the leftover pants legs to make cute little bags to keep things in.


You just take a leftover pants leg, turn it inside out and upside down, hand stitch (or machine) the cut end together, and turn the leg inside out. Then take two colored shoelaces or pieces of string and run them through the top of the open end so you can pull it tight to close, and use for a handle.

My daughter and niece make and decorate them, and they turn out great! (Their ages are 9 and 8).

Great idea! Another one is to save the cut off ends to patch the holes little boys (and big!) always seem to put in their pants.
