How To Cut Rug Without Edges Fraying?

How To Cut Rug Without Edges Fraying?

Q: I found a cheap rug that I like but the only problem is that it's too big, and I'd like to cut it so that I end up with two smaller rugs. I'm concerned that it will fray if not done properly. Has anyone diy'd a project like this with good results? Am I being unrealistic to think that I can cut, tape and glue the rug, and all will be well?
