Anyone remeber the kitchen towels from flower sack material the light weight flimsy fabric. . Well I decided to make Xmas presents this year using them and embroidered the Monday thru Friday ones all kinda different but.....having issues they are so flimsy that the stitches look horrible and when I use the washable stabilizer and wash it out my stitches don't look as nice. I am only using 2 strands any suggestion out there. Mahalo

I haven't done that in years, but always used three or four threads.

That stuff is almost impossible to get decent stitching on. Too flimsy to hold it.

You can buy tea towel blanks. This is just one site.

These are the towels I get https://colonialpatterns.com/28x28-flour-sack-tea-towels-premium-quality-set-of-7/

They are a much nicer quality than the thin/flimsy ones. Of course they are a little more expensive, but in my opinion, definitely worth it. I do machine embroidery on them and they hold up well.

The tea towels MSQC sells are wonderful! I've done machine embroidery on them for lots of tea towel aprons. And I think the are only $3.95 each.
