I'm just finishing off a cross stitch on Aida which I had attended use as the front of a toy bag. Because I'm running out of time (it's a present) I've now decided to buy a bag and attach the cross stitch to the front.

If I use wonderweb (which I already have) to stick it and maybe add a running stitch for decoration will this stop it fraying? Or do I need to buy some fray check or bias tape and do it that way?

i would probably dab just a little bit of elmers on the edges.

I would rather die of passion than of boredom.

Alternatively, depending on the look you want, you could blanket stitch around the edge? Or machine zig zag in a matching or contrast colour?

Personally I would use fray check. I've used it many times in the past and it works really well.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
