    Hello. I have made a cross stitch rug, 161cm x 111cm. Unfortunately I did the edge design in rows going round the edge which now makes a ridge. I thought one way of solving this would be to find a stick on backing that would flatten this ridge.
    At the moment I have a linen backing on the rug, just attached at the edges, I would re sew this after sticking backing on it.

    Do you have a product that would do this?
