    Can you pick up your pieces, lay them on steam a seam 2, trace and cut them out and then lay them back and fuse them on the top before stitching. Fusing does help to stop the fraying. They usually tell you to apply a piece a little bigger than the design to make sure you get fusing on the very edges before you cut it out.
