Is there something to use to hem PJ bottoms, besides sewing?

I'm not fond of sewing hems. I have arthritis, so it hurts. Plus, I don't have the patience.
I know I've seen products on TV, but can't remember exactly what they are.

  • Just go to the fabric store and ask. Once I got over my fear of looking like an idiot for asking so many questions, I discovered the fabric store is a plethora of information and ideas!

  • I found the fabric glues work really well. Make sure the fine print says it can be washed.

  • "No Sew" glue - I think you can find it at Michael's. It's a special glue made JUST for that!! I might be wrong about the name but call your local Arts & Crafts store - they'll tell you.

  • go to Joanns. They can help. Stitch Witchery should work just iron it between the fabric.

  • You can use fabric tape... it's double sided and all you do id you stick it to one side of the fabric then peel off the other side of the tape, fold over the hem, making sure it's sealed nice then heat it up with your iron.
