Slow cloth/boro stitching patches/fabric question

Hi! I’m thinking of making a few patches for the raffle swap in the above mentioned style. I’ve made them before, but I always fray check the edges of the fabric. I’m wondering if that is necessary or something that anyone else does.

What do you think?

Hey! I don’t usually fray check every edge. Only ones I’m really worried about at the very end. I also think it depends on where/how being used. Something that gets a lot of wear or exposure would prob benefit from some fray check. Something decorative prob doesn’t need it. Type of fabric is definitely a factor as well.

Bottom line…I think most raw edges in this type of stitching are just fine to leave as is. Hope this helps!
