Default What ?!?!?

Howdy y'all :c)

OK.....so we all know I'm a quilter. Which for all intents and purposes, means I'm a seamstress. So would someone PLEASE explain to me why my pants cuffs look like this?!?!? I'm SUCH a failure..... *hanging head in shame*

simple, I don't and you probably don't hem. it's easier to make pants then to hem them.
use duct tape, or I just buy pants that are cut short.

Use that Serger! I buy blouses that are way too long now and mark a line on the bottom and away I go with the serger and wear them just like that.

IMHO what self-respecting Quilter wants to waste their time hemming, mending, darning, or repairing zippers? Not me for certain! If I want that kind of aggravation, I'll go back to work. There are too many wonderful quilts to be working on instead!

Got any steam-a-seam for applique? Instant hem, no sewing!

I'm with the others. Just too lazy to do my own but take the time to do others. Just wish I was a little taller then would not have to hem. To heck with shorter, I'm already 2" shorter that high school and several lbs heavier.
Ba Hum Bug!
