I made a little mug rug and my plan was to machine stitch the binding on by stitching it on the back and then turning it to the front and machine stitch from the front. Well for some reason it looked awful (I guess it looks better on a bigger quilt because the stitching is smaller by comparison). So i took all the topstitching out but I don't really want to rip out and resew the binding to the front. Is there any secret to doing a really good hand stitching that won't look bad on the front? Or should I just suck it up and rip it out and redo it (theoretically it should just fit right on without my having to adjust the ends that are sewed together)??
eta: my subject line says on the top but what I mean is on the front.
