Default Fabric Flip Flops..how to keep from fraying?

Okay I have gotten into making fabric flip flops lately and I love making them because of the endless variety of fabric..my thing is that I have notice that after wearing a few times the material tends to shred and leave little string everywhere..I know with ribbon you can heat seal the ends but what can you do for fabric.

Below is some of the ones I had done

I would think you could do the same thing to your ribbon on the flops. You could also use fray check (sold in the fabric department) to seal the ends. HTH
