If your fabric frays, finish all edges, either with a zig-zag, or with a zig-zag + folding the edge back and stitching it in place with a slipstitch, or like I did, on a serger/overlock machine.
If you choose to zig-zag the edges only, you don’t need to add any seam allowance around the edges.
The picture shows my shrug after I finished the edges.
