Right and Wrong Side of Fabric

By October 31, 2009

Follow me on:

In response to a recent blog post about right and wrong sides of fabric, Pat from Cross-Stitch-Art.com posted this great tip.

She writes, "Fabrics do definitely have a wrong and a right side. Here's how to tell: Take the upper left corner in your left hand and the lower bottom right corner in your right hand and gently pull. The upper right corner will curl toward the right side of the fabric. It will work every time."

Thanks Pat! One thing I love about this site is that stitchers are so wonderful about sharing tips and knowledge with others.If you have a question about Cross Stitch, fabric, needles, or any other topic related to needlework, there are several ways to get answers. You may email me directly at crossstitch.guide@about.com with your queries. If your question stumps me, I will research it or post it here for help from others.

OR, you can post your question in the About.com Cross Stitch Forum. The members there are so knowledgeable and love to help. So, post or send in those burning questions today!

All these years and I’ve never given the fabric a thought as to right side, wrong side (except fabric for clothing of course). It makes sense there would be a right and wrong for Aida and evenweave and linens. Thanks for this tip. Easy to do.
