I've just finished these really cute kitchen towels for my boyfriends mother and want to give them to her for her birthday soon but I want it to look finished, like you would buy in a store. The front embroidery looks great but the back has all of the little knots and strings and looks a little messy. Is there a nice way to finish the towel? I don't have a sewing machine so nothing that's too difficult.
It's a kitchen towel that I bought in a fabric store specifically made for stitching so it has a little beige square in the middle. I was thinking about maybe hand sewing a little fabric piece to the back? Is that tacky? This is a kitchen towel so it does have to be some what sturdy. Any suggestions?
