I use fusable chrystals for embellishment a lot and, although they usually stay thru many washings, sometimes they come off right away depending on the fabric. Loosely woven fabrics or usage of the garment can be a problem.
Now I add a tiny drop of fray guard before fusing the chrystal to the fabric and find that they stay on much better and even withstand my little grandson's attempt to pick them off...sometimes...lol.

do you apply the fray guard or fray check to the fabric. Does it need to dry first? thanks!
