Want to Lengthen Jeans Without Hem Lines Showing?

The next time you need to make a pair of jeans longer without having those awful hem lines show, I have a great little tip.  This will save you money and frustration.

1.  Borrow one of your children's blue crayons and color over the released hem line. 

2.  Now take out your ironing board. 

3.  Place a clean cloth over the top or a sheet of newspaper on your ironing board.

4.  Then turn those jeans inside out and iron in the crayon.

The color will transfer into that newly exposed hem line surprisingly well. 

Trust me, those jeans will look so much better just by using this simple, but effective solution.

This is a really cool and useful tip. We've all been in that position of having a perfectly good pair of jeans that are now too short. Thanks so much for sharing!
