    Oh, yes....I like homemade ones, too. I found some really loosely woven fabric in my stash and hemmed some rectangles for tea towels, they really absorb well. BTW, Hemming tea towels was the first project we were given when my sisters and I learned to machie sew. That, and aprons....how I hated doing those small hems on apron ties! Today, I don't mind so much.

    Has anyone used monks cloth? It is quite absorbent. The only problem I had was with a delicate design getting somewhat lost in the weave.

    I'm not fussy about the type. Just wondering what others found as a substitute for purchasing towels.
