I just finished a skirt project with a cluny lace trim. Where I had to cut the lace, it's beginning to fray and I need some help.

How can I stop the fraying and how can I prevent it for my next project.



please and thank you <3

I'd trim off the frayed bits and try some Fray-Check to seal them.  (Fray-check is a clear liquid that comes in a little bottle, you can find it at most fabric stores)  When I work with lace, I try to stitch a line just inside of where I'm going to cut it before I make the cut, it helps hold it all together.
