I've decided to embroider a set of tea/kitchen towels. When I was talking to the bf about it, he made a request on what color to use as the base. Light yellow. Of course, I can't find that.  Roll Eyes So I thought I could get some fabric and make them. I've done it once before and I am absolute crap at cutting a straight line  Shocked Tongue Grin but it's the only way I can think to get what I want and satisfy the bf. (What he cares about the colors in the kitchen is beyond me! I'm the one who cooks!  Roll Eyes But whatever.)

I'm looking for types of fabrics that might work best as a tea/kitchen towel. I prefer a mid to heavy weight fabric. I'm thinking linen would be awesome...anyone have a favorite they use? A chambray might be nice too. I've embroidered on that before. I wouldn't want to get like just a basic cotton..too thin. We will actually USE these items. So they have to handle some heavy wear.

I appreciate any conversation about this. Resources are awesome! Hey...what about looking at a thrift store? That just came to me. It might be searching for needle in a hay stack...but maybe.... Huh

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Aunt Martha makes the best tea towels and you can get them in a variety of colors. They are the only ones I use. Sublime Stitching makes a good towel too in a variety of colors.
