I have gone crazy!!! !!!
You have heard it here first!!!
I decided that I wanted a pretty dish drain mat. Don't you just love it?
Talk about putting a little sunshine in the kitchen.
Well...I couldn't stop there. I made these this morning. The chevron ones have a towel backing for absorbing more.
The other two just have a pretty backing fabric
. I like the towels on the back but in the same breath I love the fabric backing because they dry quicker.
Here are some that I made Friday - up close and personal.
Why am I making so many? Don't know...just love them. Will probably put them in my booth but that is not why I am making them....just making them to make them.
Okay, now it is verified that I am strange.....
These measure 18 1/2" x 16", with batting in the middle, quilted and then regular binding. So fun. great way to do some FMQ
2 FAT QUARTERS
BINDING - using one and a half strips 2 1/2" wide the length of the fabric
1 FAT QUARTER
1 TOWEL (YOU WILL ONLY NEED HALF)
BINDING AS ABOVE.
You can even use the remaining towel scraps to make pot holder backs.
If you like the corners rounded, I would just get a bowl and do it that way. I have an old dish mat (GRAY an ugly) for my template.
What an idea! I have one of those foam-filled $5 mats from the store. I thought it was necessary to have foam, but who says? This is just as absorbent, I'm sure. I want to visit your booth! Sorry to be absent but commenting was a problem awhile back. It seems to be working now. :)
I love your postings, you inspire me, thank you! I think they would make lovely LIttle Quilts of Love too, for stillborn babies.
They really are a pretty bit of sunshine for the dish cleaning chore. I love making them and using them myself.
What a great idea! They're all so pretty! :0)
Thank you. Good idea and, yes, they are pretty.
Great looking and great idea! Thanx for the info. L
You are just way too clever! These are ingenious!
Great job Barb. I have been buying cheap ones at the dollar store. I should be making my own.
Those are super cute and I can see why the addiction. Super fun and so pretty for the kitchen.
I love all the prints...I'm sure they make doing dishes a lot more fun!
What a great idea! I think I need some of these!
That is such a great idea and I love the fabrics you have used for them. They would make awesome gifts.
Well it looks like your kitchen has gone to the birds! Lovely work........I really love those quick little projects.......the one's I call my "instant gratification" projects.....
great way to add some sunshine into the kitchen. love it!
What a fun idea!
