Easy way to hem blue jeans, pants or shorts.

I found this on a blog years ago.  I'm not sure what blog it was.  
But, I have used this idea a lot on all types of pants and shorts.  
It works great every time.

Step 1  (Not pictured)
Put pants on the person and find where you would like the seam to be.  
Fold the pant leg up.

Step 2  (picture below)
Measure the length that you folded up on the pants and divide by 2.
Fold the pants at the new length and pin.


Step 3 (picture below)
Sew right up against the old seam.  I sew it twice around just to be sure.

Step 4 (picture below)
Cut the pants about a 1/4 an inch from where you sewed against the old seam.

 Step 5  (picture below)
Add Fray Check all around where you cut the pants.  
That way you wont have strings hanging down when your wearing them.

Step 6 (picture below)
Fold the old hem back down and iron.
Step 7 (no pic sorry)
Wear your new pants!  
No one can tell that you did the hem yourself!
