easy patched leggings

We are huge fans of the inexpensive leggings at Target, Wal-Mart and the like, but the downside is that so is everyone else! If you want to make your little one’s leggings a little bit more special we’ve got a few upgrade ideas for you!

We scooped up the Circo brand styles at Target and dug around in our fabric scrap pile for coordinating fabrics. With a little fabric glue, you’re good to go!diy, knee patches, leggings, kids
We cut out the scraps in circles and triangles and spread an even coat of glue over the patch. (If you have iron on fabric on hand that would be equally awesome!)

    This is the cutest idea. I love how a little detail can make the leggings so sassy.

    The black with striped patches are so cute and now you’ve got me wanting to shop for leggings for my son at Target. I never really thought to just buy them in the girls dept. for him, lol.

    This is so great, I love that knee patches are cool again! You could totally do this with the elbows too.

    Awesome! I’m going today to get some pants …. How do they was with the fabric glue? Should I hand wash & air dry?
