My first time posting a pic, hope it works!

I designed this for a friend of mine....This was my first time working on dark fabric, what a pain! I liked the way it turned out though...thanks for letting me share!  Grin
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Backing/interfacing for embroidery...HELP! on: May 20, 2010 05:53:29 PM
Ok, please forgive me if I am repeating a question asked a thousand times...I have searched on this board(and elsewhere) for an answer to my problem, and just can't seem to find it!!

Here we go....I am trying to figure out how to finish off the back of my embroidery. I just can't see leaving it all open, especially when it's on a piece of clothing or a dishtowel, etc...So far, I have tried 2 different products, unsuccessfully. One was a cheap, "permanent" iron-on interfacing(very thin, almost see-thru)...This seemed to work great, until I washed the item, and it started peeling off! Sad So then I found another permanent iron-on(had a sticky back to it)...This one was a gooey mess, made it look awful!

So, my question is, what specifically do you guys use to back your embroidery? Can you give me brand names? Any idea on what, if anything, I was doing wrong??? Any feedback is much appreciated!!
