Hem pants like a pro– no sewing

Have you heard of fusion tape? This is a hemming trick I like.  Who wants to spend their time stitching? For this project, all you need are scissors, fusion tape, and an iron. I did this today, making pegged leg jeans into cute capris. You cut the fabric, fold it, tape it on the underside an iron over your crease on a warm temperature.  Let it cool and iron again.  Your hem will stay in place even after going into the washing machine. I don’t recommend this for chiffon or silk– those sheer fabrics need to be hemmed by hand.
