    Good question! I do NOT come from a family of DIYers, and so I remember when I was 12, hemming a pair of jeans by myself (instead of bringing them somewhere). It was a super simple task, but it made me feel very capable.

    Wow! That is a BIG first feat, how did you do it? I started small with mine and made some crafts to get comfortable with paint and different brushes. You went bold and big. Nice!!!

      Thank you. I took the old cover off and used it as a pattern and had a good staple gun. It didn't come to too bad. It lasted for several years.

    I'm also a sewer and I've done a lot of hemming.
