DIY: Stitching your Leggings

Since today was a quiet day for me, I figured I get some creative on, and this time around, I threw myself over my black tights

I rarely use my solid black tights anymore, just because they're too boring, but that's an easy fix with some needle and thread.
*Sorry about the photo quality, but my DSLR was NOT having it.

# First off you got to figure out your design, I usually go to either tumblr, pinterest or Etsy for inspiration, I kept it simple this time with crosses.

# Firstly I sketch the design out on paper, cut it out and pin it where I want it placed. If you don't have a mannequin, or.. a random fake leg laying around... wear your tights while doing this, and be careful not to jab yourself.

# Awesome, you found the perfect spot, now get on with the stitching  since I didn't have as thick thread as I wanted, I just doubled it up.
If you've done embroidery before, you know there's a lot of different ways to stitch, but if you're me, you're lazy, and won't use any of those ways.
Tip: roll down your tights so you can hide the knot on the inside.

# And after a lot of stitching, you're done! /Maybe... you can do more if you want to. 8D

Tbh this is a first time for me, but I can sense that I might get addicted to this.
