Today over at Sparrow's Nest, Mrs. Wilt started an Anti-Procrastination Challenge. I have so many things that need to get done in my home that I KNEW I could do this challenge.
Today's challenge is to hem my DH's pants. He has two pairs of jeans and one pair of pajama bottoms that need hemmed and I know I can take 2 inches off those pants! Really, how hard can it be? I need to remember to allow for the folded in edge at the bottom of the jeans. I guess that means I need to cut off 1 & 1/2 inches and fold over 1/4 and then 1/4 again. If there are any ladies who read this and can confirm or deny that this is true I would appreciate it.
Do I need a special needle in my sewing machine to sew jeans? Hmm, something else to think about. No matter, it needs to be done and therefore, it is my Anti-Procrastination mission today.
I must remember to stay focused on that particular task and not get sidetracked. I think that in itself will be a victory!! LOL
EDITED ON 1/24/06 TO ADD
Ok, I got the two pairs of jeans done. I still have the pajama bottoms but I will get those done this evening. DH was soooo proud of me. They don't look professional or anything and I only broke one sewing machine needle (I knew I should take the pins out as I went) but they are finished and I saved us $12.00. (That's how much it cost to get them hemmed before ($6.00 each).) Life is good. I accomplished something I have never done before!! Yea ME!!
Here's a Picture of the finished product:
