Author Topic: Stopping woven canvas from fraying  (Read 869 times)

My other half has a 1942 gas mask bag where the piece of canvas that holds the ring that attaches to the strap has frayed.  I removed the old one by unstitching it and she has replaced it using a piece of an old woven canvas strap doubled over that closely matched the original.  The issue now is that the two ends of this have the potental to fray, so how best to stop that?

There is some stuff which you paint on called no fray but I would just use a blob of superglue or clear nail varnish.

I would use a paintbrush and paint on any white PVA glue that you happen to have.  Let it dry without touching anything.
