For a quick and easy hem, you can always try the no-sew method using fusion tape. Fusion tape is a fusible material that has an adhesive coating which will bond the fabric together without sewing. It is kind of like double-stick tape, but activated with heat. Fusible tape will come pre-cut in strips and ready to apply to a project like a hem. In fact, it is also known as 'hem tape'.
Follow all directions that come with your fusible material, application may vary. It is a good idea to try a little bit at a time to test what kind of pressure and heat you need to apply with the iron for the best bond.
Measure a piece of fusible tape that will fit all around inside the hem. Tuck it inside and iron it according to the instructions on the fusible tape package.
