I did a Google search and found a few ideas to prevent fraying.

-Cut fabric on the bias (diagonal)
-spray edges with hairspray or fray check (not sure about staining lighter colors)

I like the idea of the "vintage feel" in some cases, but for the times I don't want fraying I'm going to try to figure something out.

I sprayed with starch, hung it upside down to dry, separated the strips by twisting a bit so they wouldn't 'nest' together, then repeated everything one more time. Now that the bow is totally dry, I have been rubbing it, tugging on it, etc., and there is no fraying. That could be just the fabric I used, or it could be the spray starch helped prevent fraying.

I am very pleased with the tut-In the past, google has been my friend. Now though, my fourth baby is walking and I just don't have the time to spend figuring things out! In this case, the money was well worth the time and frustration that she is saving me.

Plus, she's a real sweetheart-I really feel like she wants us to be successful mastering her technique.
Which tutorial is it?

Jesseka, that bow is beautiful...I liked how you used the fabric with the korker. Great combination of materials for a very cute bow. I need to try that out! Yes, I would agree too that the rag bows are probably easy to make similar to a korker bow.

I need to make these. My mom sews around two outfits a day. I would love to make this bow to match the clothes. I bought an instruction for a hairbow like this wondering if I could use the same directions.
