    I have a rotary cutter that has a pinking blade. I pink all my fabric before washing. It works great... stops any ravelling.. and when I look in my stash and see those pinked edges, I know it has been washed! Barb C.

    Barb that's a great idea. I've always zigzaged my fabric on the ends to keep it from fraying but the scissors are much easier. I'll try that next time! :D

    I zigzag the two cut ends of my fabric together before washing. It stops raveling and also cuts way down on fabric twisting during the wash cycle. When you're ready to use the fabric, just cut the seam off.
