I hemmed 6 pairs of jeans on Sunday night using the BabyJ Guide and it was the easiest thing ever! Even got me some invisible thread for the outside finishing touch. This was after I cut my SFAM grommets too short and had to fork out $15 to get it fixed and the lady didn't even do as good a job as what I could've done myself (using the BabyJ Guide)!

This should be a sticky.

You need a #90 or #100 needle for jeans. I use #100 and have no problems with breaking needles.

^^^ Yes, 100 is thicker and therefore stronger. Great for denim and leather and anything bulky.

Aww, you're welcome everyone - I'm so glad people are benefiting from this! I have hemmed my Super T Joeys this way, but it's a little bit more tricky. You have to line up the seams and pin them in place really well, otherwise they'll move around. The excess material on the inside will bunch a little bit, but you can iron it flat. You have to be very careful when sewing around the fat seam, because your needle is likely to get stuck there. Turn your needle manually until you get past the seams.

Another(easier but scarier) way to do it would be to cut off the hem to line it up, that way you don't have any bunching. I have Joeys done both ways. I'll try to get pics up soon, but my computer at home took a shit and I'm still waiting on our new one so it might take a week.

Dude, if you are anal about the seams, take them to a tailor! I fold hem my Super's and the seams don't line up, but I don't care. If someone is that nosey, to look at my hem, then ppfffft.

lol.

I prefer this method only because I can let them out to resell. If I wasn't worried about resale, and had the skill and proper machine, I would do sandwich method.

Just look for one that can sew denim - that's pretty much the only requirement for this process

My pictures are Joey's. You just fold and sew! If you are anal about the seams matching up, you will have to cut them off, taper and reattach. I did that with my pink crowns and it was ridiculous!
