What fabric to use for dishwashing towel?

My parents gave us a bunch of little dishwashing towels last year. We use them instead of a sponge because they can be washed. Well, one by one they've been disappearing so we need more. I was going to just buy some until I realized I could probably just make them from leftover fabric. What would be a good fabric to use for this purpose?

I make mine with one side terry and one side flannel but I'm sure you could make it all with terry cloth.

flannel, terry and sherpa are all great fabrics for this. Most of the ones I make are flannel on one side and either terry or sherpa on the other side.
