Laura Fry has these following steps. They are listed on Craftsy.
Tip #1: Beam the warp under consistent tension using good packing materials
Tip #2: Try to be consistent about using the correct amount of tension during weaving on the warp for the yarn being used
Tip #3: Do not weave too close to the beater/reed
Tip #4: Wind your bobbins well
Tip #6: Leave a good angle on the weft and make sure it is loose in the shed when beating to ensure that it can take up across the width of the weaving and not cause excessive draw in.
Tip #7: Be consistent advancing and tensioning the warp
Tip #8: Be consistent in beating
Tip #9: Set the weft loops at the selvedge with good tensionFinal note: The first step in achieving good selvedges is to develop good working skills.
