Was a bit in a hurry to embroider two more towels for my acquaintance and do some sewing at the same ttime as I am running a bit behind schedule. The embroidery looked good so I proudly folded the towel to wrap it up. Hmmm ... I had stitched it on the back. So I ripped all seams (kudos for the inventor of the seamripper) and will iron them to the other side, and stitch them. How's that for time saving .... might just as well have done one after the other.

I finished hemming the one and embroidering the second- right way up this time. You have to lay them next to one order to see that the direction of the weave is different.See picture.

Great solution! I know the feeling of ripping out stitching. Thanks for the idea!

A lot more work just when you think you’re finished.
I hand sewed Ashley’s label to the side of her quilt instead on the bottom🙄

Oh dear. It never happens when you are not in a hurry. But when I am I really should make time and check twice. To mangle the old saying: Embroider in haste, repent at leisure. :)

Great solution for covering up the error !

I would never have thought to do redo the seams. Very clever indeed! I agree, kudos to the inventor of the seam ripper. I keep several on hand because I go through them so fast.

I smiled at this one because I have done that. They then become mine. For the future I will remember your ingenious solution should I make the same mistake again.

I kept one once, but this one had a family set of arms on it.
