i'm losing it! some of the fabrics--especially the batiks & hand dyes---are identical on front & back---
how do you recognize their fronts & backs when sewing with other pieces ...?
how have you dealt with this?
{i'm waiting for somebody to say it doesn't really matter!}

batiks and hand dyes do not have a right/wrong side, it is the way they are dyed :D
other fabrics, I have used the "wrong" side if it worked better for me :D:D:D

It doesn't really matter on these. On other fabrics you can look at the selvadges--the best one is the right side.

If you cannot tell, then no one else will either - one of the things I love about batiks.

Fabrics that are dyed don't have a right or wrong. Fabrics that are printed, do.
