Recycled Towel Bath Mat

Before you begin, make sure your towel or towels are all well washed. You can use old t-shirts as well...
A. Decide how big you want your bath rug to be and then cut your gridded matting to those dimensions.

B. Next, turn your scissors on ...your towels and begin cutting them into 5 or 6 inch
long pieces about ¾ of an inch thick.

C. Now it’s just a matter of knotting each strip along the grid, making sure they all face the same way. For the best results, we recommend knotting along every box of the grid, but if you don’t mind a thinner mat – or just don’t have the patience - then every other box is fine, too. You can work on this project while you’re watching TV or sitting around with your family after dinner – whenever your hands are free. It may take you a while, but it will be more than worth it once you’re finished. Stepping out onto your fun new eco bath rug first thing in the morning after a nice hot shower will put you in a bright mood for the whole of the day!
