    tea towels

    I rather like old-fashioned tea towels, like my grandmother had, with the dainty embroidery on them. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get blank tea towels like that, because I have an idea for my own version of pretty tea towels. (Not terry cloth towels, mind you. This were a normal cotton sort of thing.)

    are you talking about flour sack towels? Dharma Trading carries them

    www.dharmatrading.com

    along with other "blanks" you can embroider/embellish.

    Yes, that's be it. Thank you ever so much.

    It seems they're rather pricey. Oh well, I think I've enough sewing to do without adding moer to my list. :)

    Ah, but it's so easy to buy a coupla yards of cotton muslin, wash the heck out of it a few times, then tear it into towel lengths and hem it. In fact, you can skip hemming the ends and let them fringe and fray. Just hem the sides. You'll save mucho $$.

    Thing is, I only want a few to look pretty in front of my stove, and I've been sewing about every other day lately, so I'd like to avoid it.

    I got the Martha ones. The price is sort of reasonable and I didn't have to deal with shipping costs. If I do it again, I may well sew them, but I still have other sewing projects lined up to do when I get done with the current ones. (I'm a relatively new wife who moved in with a husband who used old sheets as curtains and such. We're dirt poor, and I'm sort of persnickety, so I've been making a lot of stuff myself.)

    To be honest, I much prefer embroidery to sewing, and it will be a nice break from it for awhile. :)
