This is the seventh pair of leggings you've had to throw away because everyone can see your butt.

Or there's a hole that every one of your friends feels the need to point out and make you feel like a total slob. Whatever. Make a pillow out of them, and we'll see who's got there ish together, then.

You'll need a few things besides your best pair of crappy leggings:

Your second best pair of crappy leggings

Needle

Pins

Thread

Cushion stuffing, $7.15

1. Sew the ankles on your crappy leggings shut.

Sew any holes closed while you're at it. (Except the waistband.) Check. They're there.

2. Stuff your crappy leggings full of cushion stuffing ($7.15).

I told you there was a hole. I told you.

3. Roll the top like a bag of chips and pin it shut so that you can sew it closed.

4. After you've done this to two pairs of leggings, knot them together.

Cross the bottom pair over the top pair, cross the top pair over that, fold the other side of the bottom pair, and tuck the other side of the top pair into the original loop.

5. Spin and tuck the legs around the knot.

6. Secure the pieces by flipping the pillow, pinning the ends in place, and making a few stitches on each.
