    I received this as part of the Product Review Club.

    I absolutely love this! I used them on my pants and my curtains! My curtains had been just a touch too long for the last year, and this was a super fast, quick and easy way to hem them! Love!

    If you don't own a sewing machine or not great at hemming then this is a great product to use! Much faster and easier! A great time-saver!

    Not my favorite of the products, but for those of us who have no sewing skills (much to the chagrin of our mothers) this does come in handy. I don't feel it works the best on heavy weighted pants (jeans no) but for those dress pants, it does work the best. Not a huge fan of the ironing aspect afterall I would need an iron to do it

    This is such a cool product! I don't own a sewing machine, so it can be a huge hassle for me when it comes to needing pants hemmed. This is a definite life changing product. how wonderful!

    Thank you Chickadvisor for sending me this product to review. I think this is a great product for people who don't sew or have time (or it takes forever) to take their stuff to a tailor (myself included). I see these hem bonding strips being a good solution. I used it to shorten a pair of pants that were a little too long and so far they are working well.

    However, I am curious to see how well the stickiness lasts after several washes through the laundry machine.

    I received this item for free to review. I love this! My pants have this bad habit of being too long. Apparently women can't have different length legs when they're a certain size. I have a pair of jeans that fit great in the waist but are, of course, too long. I don't sew, can't hem anything, and wouldn't even try with jeans. I love this product, easy to use and so far, quite durable. Saves me times having to take them to get done professionally or bug my mother in law to do it.

    I also enjoyed this product. Hemming pants can be so expensive, and I found this an affordable ad easy way to do it at home since I love DIY.
    Brand new dress pants for work were way too long, needed a quick fix for a meeting!
    HELLO bonding strips!!! Totally saved the time of waiting for someone else to hem my pants and it was done in a flash. Great at home product for non-sewers!

    I received this product for free from ChickAdvisor and was so excited to give it a go! I have a pair of those stretchy pseudo type dress pants that I got for a bargain, but have always been a bit too short to wear as regular length pants. I've always wanted to hem them an inch to make them more cropped, but I do not own a sewing machine (let's be real...even if I did, I probably wouldn't know how to use it). These permanent hem strips worked great! They stuck very well and give a nice finished edge. I haven't washed them yet, but am confident based on the current hold and other reviews that they will stay. I think $7.99 is reasonable for 30 strips if it gets me out of sewing or tailoring and I only have to do it once. I used about 6-7 for one pair of pants. I can see myself using these in the future, but will likely still lean towards the tailor for any expensive items.

    Awesome! My family and I are not of the really tall size range so therefore quite often off the rack pants are a little bit on the long side for us. I was excited to try these on a pair of dress pants I recently purchased and the timing was perfect. I made quick use of the strips and they worked like a dream. I can't stress how easy and effective these were and love them. I am not much of a sewer so therefore usually have to rely on others to do these tasks for me so I will definitely be adding these to my go to list of tools to help me out! Thanks for the opportunity to try.

    *I received this product from ChickAdvisor in exchange for a review.

    This product is awesome especially if you don't really feel like going to a tailor and you just want to quickly fix it yourself permanently. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow.
