I keep having threads sticking out from my fabric edges fraying and yours look so neat. Any tricks to keeping edges neat?

If the fabric comes dyed both sides, then fraying does not show as much, the fabrics that are printed just on the top show the fraying more.

I don't remember what I did to keep the threads from showing so much, maybe if you cut the loose threads close to the fabric that would help?

I did notice when I used Batiks they didn't fray as much. And they are the same on both sides. My teacher said the threads were part of the charm, like country chic. I didn't like it so much!
