Do any of y'all know where I can find plain tea towels to embroider? (I'm talking BIG like at least 20X20 in)
Or even just the right dimensions in fabric would be awesome.

Believe it or not, I made some of my own out of really absorbant fabric I found at Jo-Ann's - it was called "diaper fabric" I guess they make nappies out of it! It was light weight and had a little diamond pattern on it. I just hemmed it up and there you go! Oh, and I embroidered it with big tikis for my friend!

I found mine at Wal-Mart too, only I found them  in the needlework aisle. They are called flour sack towels and they was 5 in a package for five bucks. I usually cut mine in half, if I want them to be a hand towel size. They are really soft but they are kind of stretchy so it's like embroidering on t-shirt fabric which can be tricky. Places like Hobby Lobby and Michaels usually have blank tea towels that you can buy individually or in pairs.

K-mart has blank tea towels also in their Martha Stewart collection.  The plain ones were gone at the k-mart I was at last month but i checked out the ones with designs on and they looked like better quality then the ones i've been buying at walmart for 5.00--Also, Martha Stewart's pillowcases are much better quality than the ones at wal-mart.  I've been buying them and embroidering them for wedding presents and I'm not going back to buying them at wal-mart.
