How can I fix a hole in my pants without sewing?
The most popular way, if not the best way to fix a hole in jeans without sewing is by using heat-activated tape, an iron, a fabric patch, and some fabric glue. In other words, you’ll be inserting a fabric patch into the damaged area, so your jeans come out with a new look after patching it up.
Can you patch leggings?
You can pin the patch onto the leggings, make sure the pins just go through the layer to be patched. I always start my hand sewing by anchoring the thread in the fabric*.

How can I make my leggings fit perfectly?
Begin at the waist and work downward toward the ankle. Pin the extra fabric as you go. Leave enough fabric that the leggings can be removed comfortably. Try sitting down before taking the pants off to make sure the leggings fit just as comfortably in a seated position.
