Woo-hoo for the Jean-a-ma-jig!

You know what its like – somebody asks you to turn up a pair of jeans.  “Yeah, no problem” you say, “leave them with me and I’ll have them done in a jiffy”.

And then they sit there staring at you for weeks.

So after another nagging from my friend this afternoon I thought I’d better crack on.  One of the reasons I’ve been putting it off is because I hate sewing over the thick seams on jeans.  They make my machine go haywire and I’m terrified of breaking it.  But now I have a secret weapon …….

This nifty little gadget only cost a couple of pounds and is designed to help you stitch over those pesky seams.  I’ve had it in my sewing drawer for about two years now but I haven’t been able to work out how to use it.  Yes, I know – why didn’t I look on the www for advice?  I have no answer.  Sometimes I am just stupid.

Anyway, I finally took the plunge today and took it out of the drawer.  I Googled “how to use a jean-a-ma-jig” and up the answer popped.  It was so darned simple even my cat could have used it!  For those of you keen to know how this little bit of plastic works click – http://www.dritz.com/brands/showcase/details.php?ITEM_NUM=915          

It was easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Anyone need some jeans turning up?

    I have wondered at the simplicity of this thing myself. I love the jean-a-ma-jig. I can hem jeans and make them look professionally done.
