An unexpected afternoon

... with my sewing machine


... and these...


... led to a pair of hemmed jeans!


Imperfect stitches. Tiny little steps, but ones I've been putting off since before the new year. And a new pair of jeans to wear to have six inches cut off my hair!

I hope the trimming of the hair went as well as the trimming of the jeans. What brought on the new hair style? Hemming jeans is such a necessary life skill -- I will have to tackle it some day. (Especially as my mom lives very far away.)

Good luck with the haircut! I'm sure it'll be adorable!

You made jeans? I'm VERY impressed!

Whops... misread - you hemmed jeans though, and I am still very impressed because it was the hem in particular (because it was what you photographed...) I thought looked so neat. Plus, the only time I ever tried to save/ re-use an old pair of jeans on my sewing machine I've ended up swearing at tension issues and generally getting into a tangled mess.
