I mentioned in my last post that I hemmed 4 jeans in one weekend. Mostly denim-weight fabrics. This was the first time I used my new Jean-a-ma-jig (TM) by Dritz. It's a dream to hem jeans with this little piece of plastic. Well, I also used a denim needle and thread, but all in all the Jean-a-ma-jig helped the machine sew through and go over the thickest parts of the hem (outer and inner seams).
More information on how to use it can be found on the Dritz website:
There are also pictures about how to use it on:
Looks like I am not alone to sing its praises.
Caveat: Be careful not to hit the Jean-a-ma-jig with the needle.
