Original Post

I want to make a shirt with some cut-out fabric flowers at the top. Since this will obviously be washed and worn, what fabric could I use for the flowers so they won't fray? Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!!

I'm making the top from a silk fabric, if that helps at all.

There are a couple of threads on Etsy about this. They mentioned fleece, boiled wool and felt.
