This is a great tutorial!

I had to laugh out loud, though, as I thought back to being a kid in junior high, and 'French-cuffing' my pants (a fancy pants way of saying that we pegged, or rolled, our jeans so that the slightly bootcut bottoms were skinny and we could TUCK them in to our slouchy socks). I shudder at the thought of my 7th grade self.

Back on track... nice tutorial! It's hard to find jeans that fit, no matter what kind you wear, huh ladies?

Sweet! I somehow managed to do this on my own without a tute, and I did it pretty much the same. This would have been mucho helpful, though! The only thing I did differently was that I took in the inseam, that way you can't see that the stitches are different on the inside of the leg.
Is that weird?

No, it's not weird at all! That's what I tried to do at first with my jeans. Then I decided I would do it the lazy/fast way instead haha.

PS don't make the mistake I made and make the jeans so skinny that your foot won't go through them. Smiley

LOL, I did that.
I cried too because I they looked so pretty.

This is what I love about craftster.

An easy but wonderful idea that is so clever that it's kind of crazy that we didn't all think of it already. 

Thanks so much for sharing!
