"Don't throw away your old leggings. Put them to good use by refashioning the legs into t-shirt sleeves. This easy sewing project is a great way to renew your old clothes. Simply use a long sleeve t-shirt as your cutting pattern and sew your new sleeves to a t-shirt. Leggings come in many fun colors and patterns, so choose a pair that reflects your personal style. In less than 30 minutes, you'll have a new shirt to show off."
