Backing Redwork
by: Valerie Kalyani

You do not need to put a backing on it to do the work, but if the fabric is stiffened, it may be easier for them to stitch. Pellon would be a fine choice, just don't choose one too heavy to slip a needle into easily. You did not mention what the finished item would made into, that also should affect your selection for a backing. If your cloth has enough weight to it, you may not need any at all.
