loooong day! so did not get a lot of crafting done. we had two appointments for h - one from 9:30 to 10:30, one from 11:00 to 12:30 - and then had to pick up tg's mum at 1:30 to take her to an appointment at 2:30. all of these events spread out over the city, of course. i was making sandwiches since we wouldn't have time for our traditional post-audiogram lunch, and sliced just a bit off the tip of my finger. enough that it bled a lot. boo. it was 5 o'clock when we got home and i had a nap.
so all i really achieved was chopping off a pair of jeans and then using the chopped-off bits to make cuffs.
easy stuff: cut off jeans to an inch shorter than you want them. take the leftover pantleg, and sew it back on (right sides together) where it was. chop again, 4 or 5 inches below the seam. zig zag the edge, fold the cuff up, and top-stitch along the seam, making sure the raw edges are tucked in.
