    Default Bath Mat made from Old Sheets

    While cleaning out the laundry room recently, I came across a LOT of old sheets and thought "I should find a use for these." So, after a little thinking and experimenting I decided to make a bathmat out of them by crocheting the strips together. I cut the sheets into 1/2" strips and joined them as I went by drawing up the new strip in the last step of a half double crochet. Then I weaved the ends into the mat, and voila! A new bathmat courtesy of some old sheets that would have just been thrown away. Basically, it's an old-school rag rug. Hope this idea will help somebody else.

    Lovely idea I might try for the basement bathroom. Our upstairs bathrooms all have carpeting so I bought some very lovely small carpets with heavy rubber backing that fit nicely in front of the tubs and showers. They worked out very well keeping the carpet dry and they dry out before the next shower or bath.

    It's so cheap and easy to do. Not to mention I'm addicted to crochet! LOL!

    I would love to put one up, but the picture thingy is asking for a URL, not to browse my picture file, so guess it's not going to happen.
