Best DIY Tights Ideas and Tutorials

tights from les-queues-de-sardines

I am having a tights love affair at the moment, so I am loving the idea of embellishing and drawing/printing my own tights.  I got the inspiration from these tights pictured above.  Free draw with a sharpie?  Oh the fun I will have.  I love the idea of tattoo patterned tights like was featured in Nylon Magazine. 

Or you could try to make these faux lace thigh highs I found on Etsy (I so am).  I'll post a tutorial when I do, what I would do is buy thigh highs and nude stocking and then join the thigh highs together with the tights using a zig-zag stitch.
