From scratch: quick n easy leggings from scraps

I have a lot of leftover fabric from all of my sewing projects. I keep it to try mini versions of my projects or to make my daughter things.

Tonight, I took this purple knit fabric out.

Folded it in half lengthwise and cut to create pant legs.

Sewed down both sides and in between the legs.

Folded over the very top of the waist to create a casing to add elastic.

Put a safety pin through one end of the elastic and slide it through the casing opening. Then, sew the elastic ends together.

Took about 5 minutes and now my daughter has a new pair of pants.
