What is the best stitch to stop fraying?
A three-step zig-zag is also a good stitch to stop fraying and can make the edges sit flatter. If you are fraying denim edges and want them to stop at a certain point, a zig-zag stitch around the leg a few inches from the raw edge will stop it fraying all the way up your leg.
Which stitch is used against fraying from fabric?

How do you keep fabric edges from fraying without sewing?
