I'm fixing to do something similar. Does all ripstop nylon come like that, with all the edges raw? I was kind of expecting the edges (obviously not the ends) to be actual fabric edges, like I see on most bolts in the fabric store.
I was planning on searching around/asking the pros here what kind of hem (if any) was needed. If one didn't want to waste any of the fabric's width, what would be the minimum needed to stop fraying? I've got an injector, and also an overlocker (I believe it's called a serger in the US) which I'm not afraid to use, but I'd like to minimise the loss of width. I want to do Knotty's stretch side, so I guess I need some kind of rolled hem, but do I need to do two folds, or just one, or maybe use the overlocker and then do one fold? I'm a bit lost on this subject I have to admit!
