Default Rolled Rosette Flowers- No Fraying

I love making the rolled rosette flowers for clips, headbands, etc., but was wondering how do you keep your fabric from fraying. Sometimes I like the frayed look, but I'd also like to make them where they don't fray. I know when you "rip the fabric it's going to have the frayed look, but I've tried just cutting a strip of fabric as well and it ends up fraying after I'm finished with it. Just didn't know if anyone had any tips... Thank you!

the only way i know is to fold the frayed ends in 1/4" & iron . . .

if it's a rather loose fabric, sometimes i pull the strings out and then i'm left w/a little fringe on the end.

They say if you cut your fabric on the bias it will not fray.

THe only way i have found so far is to iron the edges over but I would like another alternative as well

This may be a really stupid question, but what is a bias?

Not stupid. It means instead of cutting it horizontally or vertically, you cut it at a 45-degree angle ( diagonally).

It's true and it works. You can either glue or sew the pieces together and fold them out of sight on your flower.

You can also use double faced satin ribbon instead of fabric!

roaming around this morning . . . wonder if this would be something worthwhile . . . don't think i'd put a heavy coat on though . . . i might water it down.

More importantly, though, you can now cut it and it won’t fray.

Just to let you all know incase you haven't tried broadcloth yet.. It's NOT good for making "no fray" rosettes! What types of fabrics do you all use? I haven't heard of using the double faced satin ribbon, so that's great to know! Also, love the Modge Podge idea!
