I love the idea of using waste cloth to cross stitch on clothes and totes.  But what do you do to "finish" the back to make it comfortable to wear and machine washable?  I was thinking of using very thin iron-on stabalizer.  What do you guys use?

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Some people use that really soft iron on stabilizer. It's flannel on one side and then you iron the other.

Great, thanks KittyKill!  Now if only I had an ironing board..... (life is a little crazy and I'm currently missing many craft supplies, including my pink iron and ironing board).
