A new type of post I am thinking of adding in every so often will have to do with sewing projects. I’ve got lots of projects I’d like to do and I’m hoping 2015 will be the year I take them from my Pinterest Sewing Projects board and actually do some of them.
First up, I altered two pairs of jeans I have had sitting in my closet for the past few years because they were too long. Except for the length they fit me well and feel comfortable. I found this tutorial on Pinterest and saved it for “one day”.
Too long jeans. Sorry for the blurry photo.
I picked up the blue jean colored thread about a month ago, and (finally) yesterday I put them on, measured for the hemming, pinned them up, and sewed them. You’ll also want to cut off the excess fabric, once you check to make sure the hemming is to your liking.
I’m thrilled with how they turned out!
Now I have two pairs of jeans to actually wear instead of just having them sit on a shelf in my closet.
