    fusible interfacing on tea towels?

    What do you all use on the back of towels that you have embroidered? Fusible interfacing is what my grandmother used and the only thing I could think of, is there anything better? I want to embroider some stuff for a friend. TIA

    There are "stabelizers" that are used for that kind of thing. they look very similar to interfacing, so maybe that's what you're thinking of. I'm really not sure what the difference is b/t the 2, as I haven't embroidered anything.

    I don't use fusible because it isn't as durable as a tea towel needs to be. at least for me.

    This is easier said than done, but I keep my stitches as neat and spare as possible so that the backside is still somewhat attractive.

    some of the stablizers are washout types. They are used to stiffen the fabric for even embroidery, especially on a machine, but will either tear away or dissolve in washing.
