How do you tell which is side of the muslin is which?

I can't really tell a difference. After I washed it there were no folds for the selvages, etc.

I'm interested in responses to this question as well.

For some you can tell, e.g. it might be slightly "grittier" or smoother than the other side, but then there are so fabrics I can't tell. I figured that if I couldn't work it out, then maybe no one else would notice either :)

I just make sure I use the same side though out. Then no knows right or wrong.

If you can't tell the difference then nobody else will either. ;-)

I really didnt think it had sides to be honest with you Jan. This is an interesting question though and I am looking forward to the answers this gets.

Sometimes you can run into the same problem with batiks. Really hard to tell. So I just try to make sure I use the same side.

When I can't tell, I think - "Oh well, neither will anyone be able to." :)

I am with the others who said just keep using the same side. If it is that close, you probably wouldn't notice unless you got out a bright light and a magnifying glass :lol::lol:

I realized the same dilemma a while back and decided to use it as it gets cut.
