Once you have cut the hem, turn it under 3/4" and pin or iron in place. A coverstitch is the best treatment for the hem. If you are using a conventional sewing machine, try using a double needle or even a zigzag stitch. Stitch all the way around the hem around 3/4" in from the edge. Ideally, you want to catch the edge raw edge of your fabric in the underside of the stitch. Try starting on one of the side seams in case your stitch doesn't match up with itself.
