Cut and Sew Carpet-Binding?

I have my new carpet cut for the Model A and it fits pretty well. I plan to sew binding on the exposed edges,namely the rear where it butts against the rubber trunk matting and the front where the firewall edge is exposed.

My question is, do I have to bind the side edges which will be lying against the vertical interior sides or under the sill plates? I know it will have a bit of tendency to unravel, but I think the unsewn edge would look better. Does anyone have an opinion, and/or, practical experience with this? Thanks.
