Always pre-wash and dry your (casual, washable & dryable) fabrics!
Pay close attention to your fabric's fiber content while buying, because you'll wash it accordingly.
Many tutorials will tell you to stitch around the edges before washing, but please ONLY do this if the fabric unravels in copious amounts. Stitching will only make the process of finding & straightening more difficult.
The cut edges of your fabric will look similar to the photo after pre-washing.
