How To Cut Burlap So That It Won’t Unravel

by Genevre
Burlap is so popular right now for all different kinds of crafts and projects, but it’s somewhat of a tricky material to work with. Besides the fact that burlap is messy and leaves little fibers all over your clothes, it’s important to cut it a certain way so that won’t unravel unevenly. You can get burlap from most fabric stores like JoAnns Fabrics. You can also order it online if you need a lot and would like to buy it in bulk. Read more here:

    I'm getting married in February and we've decided to do everything ourselves and I'm doing most of it myself since my fiance' has work and I'm having the hardest time with the burlap (to make a bow) to put on our invitations. It keeps falling apart and I'm getting really frustrated with it. I saw you mentioned some type of fray stuff, could you please explain how to use it for me? I'd really appreciate it. Thank you

    You did not show how to cut burlap so it doesn't unravel. So my question is? How do you cut burlap so it doesn't unravel? Especially the poly mesh type.
