I’ve seen tutorials online for making fabric roses, they use a lining fabric or any synthetic and then they melt the edges over a candle, once this is done it won’t fray and it curls kinda prettily.

As far as not fraying you’d have to find a knit fabric instead of a woven- knits are things like jersey (t shirts) swimsuit fabric and other stretchy things..they don’t look the best as flowers.  Cotton will probably give you the least fray of woven fabrics.  There’s a type of glue called ‘fray check’ (believe it’s dritz brand) you can dab along edges to prevent fraying of a fabric like satin or you can do what PP said and lightly burn the edges, it curls the fabric and looks kind of nice =)
