An Easy Bath Mat


Miss Abigail and I went shopping last Friday to get a few things for her college apartment, and I was appalled at the price of bath mats! I was reluctant to buy one anyway because it would be a single item in the laundry and I'm afraid it wouldn't get washed as often as needed. So... I made a quick one out of an inexpensive towel that can be washed with her other towels and sheets. I just cut it into thirds, added some Cluny lace, sewed the layers together and turned it inside out. So much cheaper than a rug and easier to care for. We also made a first aid kit. I just kind of hate to think she will need it and I won't be there. Sigh. I know you all are sympathizing. Thanks for that!

  2. Great idea on the bath mat. So one towel into a three layer thickness... is that right? I want to try this. Excellent idea on the first aid kit!!!!

    1. Yes. I folded into thirds and sewed around the edges then turned.

  3. Terrific idea for a bathmat. I've used two old towels sewn together for a nice long bathmat. This idea is great for smaller ones! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great bathmat idea....and pretty! And unfortunately, first aid kits are necessary ~ better to have one and never need it, than not have one and need it immediately. I am so glad you are back to blogging! I've missed you and your wonderful ideas!

    1. Thanks Donna! I've missed blogging actually, just had my mind on so many things. It should quiet down now, I think.

    1. Thank you Anna! I'm so glad you found the blog and the archives. There really is a lot in there! I'm not finished writing yet, but it is winding down. Sadly, Abigail will be needing her hope chest at some point.
