Featured in the PR book!
If you're working with a fabric that snags/runs easily, try dabbing some clear washable glue on the wrong side of the fabric. Fray Check should work. I used "Jewel It", a fabric glue made by Aleene. (I have a bottle left over from other projects.) It worked well but it doesn't dry clear (OOPS!). Anything that doesn't leave a conspicuous spot/stain and is washable should work.

Cheers,
Kim
