When I first saw the title I thought it was how to make hemming pants, as in the adjective. I was wondering what the hell hemming pants were!

Until now my grandma always hemmed(sp?) our pants because she's a sewing-genius... now I can try on my own and impress her! :-D

That's going to come in so handy.
Now if only you can post a tutorial for making pants longer. That's my big problem. :lol:

Same here! It's hard for me to find pants I like (both for comfort and looks), and even harder to get em the right damn length!

http://www.simplesewingprojects.com/art ... Hem_Stitch

Thought I would add this, for those of us with sewing machines, with at least a zig-zag stitch, if not a blind-hem stitch. I've never used it for the purpose, hehe I thought it was just a decorative stitch, but I think I"ll try it out on a pair of pants my dad asked me to fix the hem on. Will post pics if it works, otherwise doing the by-hand way posted here, just way easier!
