First, can you buy then at say JoAnn's or a LQS? Second, are they just a heavier cotton than normal quiliting fabric? I have only seen them online so I don't know how they feel.
The reason I am asking is that I watched Jenny's from MSCO tutorial on how to make an apron from one tea towel, and some matching fabric for the ties. I want to try to make some this week while my DD is at the grandparents so I don't really have time to order online. I am planning on visiting some stores today in hopes of finding some. But if I can't, what fabric would be good to use as a substitute? I am assuming tea towels are thicker so would just a thicker quilting fabric do or would I need a lightweight home decor fabric?
