Good practice for doing binding though, I no longer need to use the tutorials on Youtube to remind me how to join the ends!

    They are different fabric on the back, but I didn't take a pic of that as I don't like it, think it's ugly. Imagine fabric that looks like shredded overcooked cabbage! Lucky the front is pretty so the back will not be seen!





    what is terry towels? is it ordinary towels?
    and what is wundaweb?

    explanation for dummies needed,lol
