Gift idea for Mom- HEM CLIPS. Measure and hold hemming projects without pins! Smooth, stainless steel clips slide onto fabric and hold hem in place while you sew or baste. Built-in measure assures straight, accurate hemlines every time.
Hemming jeans the easy way ~ I don't like the method of re-using the original hem and sewing it back on. This seems to be a good method without the bulk of the flat felled seam. Serge or zigzag the bottom edge, turn it up ONCE, then hem.
