While wearing your jeans, have a friend help you fold the cuffs of each pant leg to your desired length.

Have your friend safety pin the folded cuff to the pant leg to hold the fold in place.

Be careful that your friend only catches the fabric and doesn't stab you with a pin in the process.

Using safety pins as opposed to straight pins allows you to change out of the jeans without getting stabbed by a pin.

You only need to do one pant leg, as you will measure to make them even. If you have legs that are slightly different lengths, you can do this on both sides.
