  1. This is awesome. Very simple and quick to do. Thank you for the idea. Savi


  2. I have used this method for hemming jeans for years. The directions for hemming jeans for kids who are going to grow were very clear and the photography well done. I do add a few more steps for people who hope they don’t grow anymore.
