I have been thinking about washable floormats in my kitchen and bathrooms. I browsed a lot of shops(saw nothing washable at the price range in my mind), saw a lot of online tutorials,
this one looked promising and pretty,
I thought about it a lot, but did not make it. For one, i dont want my NEW fabric made into a floormat. Another, I have neither batting nor old towels on hand.
One day, someone was jumping on the bed and the old bedsheet couldnt take the strain. it ripped! wow. now i have a kingsize torn bedsheet, (it goes into the ragbag). I used it to wipe water spilled on the floor one day, and i really liked the fabric on the kitchen floor. (now comes the tutorial....) so i folded the rag strip into a rectangle that looked about the right size, ( yeah, guesswork, just eyeball it...) this made 3 layers of fabric. I pinned it in place with a dozen sewing pins, took it straight to the sewing machine, ran a zigzag all around the edge. Thats it! 5 minutes! Done!
