If you don’t have a serger, you can always use your regular machine to make a zigzag stitch over the edge.Though in a pinch, you could also seal the edges with fray check, or simply trim them with pinking shears. I have personally not had amazing results with the pinking, and fray checking everything seems pretty expensive to me, but I do know people who swear by both methods.
Just think. No more trying to untangle the crazy mess that comes out of the washer or dryer!
No more giant fiber knots as big as your hand! Plus, it also helps to reduce the “stretched out” feeling
some fabrics get when the threads intertwine and pull on each other. I’m not gonna lie. Once I figured
this out, I really felt like an idiot. again. This keeps happening far too often.
Not sure how you should wash a certain fabric in your stash?
Do you know any other ways to defeat the dreaded fray?
Or do you just toss it all in and fight it out later?
