I can't find any nice tea towels in my area, so I am just going to make some!  Can anyone tell me what size a tea towel is?  Is there a "standard" size? 

I used to embroider years ago as a little girl, and I am getting into it again.    I thought tea towels might be an easy "almost-first" project.

Thanks for your help!   Smiley

Depends on what kind of "tea towel" you want - I've seen 16x25 (I have a few of those) and larger ones, around 20x28 - I have a bunch of "blank" ones that size that eventually, some day, I shall embellish. I got them on Ebay. I think I paid $10 for 50 of them, plus $8.00 for shipping - so, $18.00 for 50. Not bad. They're 100% cotton. It's a good thing they're large, because they shrunk quite a bit after I washed them before storing. If you're making "fancy" tea towels, you might go for linen, but then I'd make them smaller - the 16x25 at the most.
