The weather has been fab over the past few days hasn't it? And long may it continue. Beds have been changed, pillows have been washed, a bit of gardening has been done. I have been in the mood for cleaning, tidying and organising.
There is a drawer in my bedroom that is full of tights, some are holey, some are a bit bobbled at the knee, one pair had shrunk in the wash. I never throw tights away, they are so useful. A quick google for inspiration shows that I am not the only one.
Here's a few of my own ideas
* Ties. I used them to tie stakes in the garden, roll up out of season duvets and tie them with the tights before they go away, I tidy the hose pipe when it goes away in winter, I thread small strips through garden tools so I can hang them up. Bascially anything you need strong string for.
* Stuffing a cushion. Cut up into bits tights can be soft and bouncy.
* If they are just a bit bobbly and washed up they are great under trousers in winter to keep warm.
* Designer teddy clothes. Because the lycra ones don't fray you can do no sew clothes for dolls and teddys. The brighter coloured tights are best for this - tank tops and hats are easy.
There are a 1000 more ideas on the internet, much more cleverer ;o) than my ideas (Pinterest is a good place to start.)
So tell me - what do you do with old tights?
