Hello from the backside!
I often get asked about how to finish the backs of my embroidered dishtowels. While I do try to make the backside neat, it is not as neat as the front. There is an old adage, "Make the back as neat as the front". Not sure how to achieve this perfection as I am self taught, but here are my tricks to carry threads and neaten up my knots.
This view is from the backside of "Farm Girl" Embroidered Dishtowel.
In these photo's, I am finding a path to bring my thread to the next crevice line in my stitched tomato.
I don't want to knot and start my thread again. It is only a 1 inch to my next stitching line. But, I do not want to carry the thread across the back. This causes potential pulling and looks messy.
So, I wrap around existing
lines to get where I need to go.
