Use Existing Thread When Changing a Hem

When hemming up a new pair of pants, I use the original thread from the pants to re-hem them. If you cut and pull the right piece of thread from the beginning (seam area) of the hem, you will wind up with a very long piece of thread. This is especially good for pants, that you don't have matching thread for in you sewing box.

Ya know its a simple thing but I never would have thought of it. I will have to be more careful when pulling out thread. Pants in stores are always just a little too long. Thank you for the tip.
