Let us face it moms these days are no longer baking brownies and doing laundry. We are working (sometimes 2 jobs), taking care of the family and then other tasks. It’s hard these day not to multitask. My grandmother showed me how to sew by hand but even that can take up too much time. What alternatives are there when you just want a simple hem or even a harder project like making curtains of pillowcases? I shop at thrift shops and sometimes a hem has come out-of-place so what do you do?

One method that is really effective is iron on hemming tape. The hemming tape that I use is Heat & Bond. Below is a video on how to use hemming tape. Happy Sewing!
