What stitch should I use to sew the fabric edge to prevent raveling?
A simple machine zig-zag on the edge also works well on cotton fabrics. Try a zig-zag of width 3 and length 3 and see how that looks and whether the fraying is stopped. A three-step zig-zag is also a good stitch to stop fraying and can make the edges sit flatter.
