Quilted Dish Mat


Okay, I have been wanting to make one of these for. ev. er. I finally did it! using some scraps of my favorite fabric of all time.


I used a thrifted terry cloth hand towel  for the bottom. For the top I simply took scraps from my stash and pieced them together until they fit the size of my towel. I didn't actually quilt the top to the bottom. All I did was sew the top to the bottom, right sides together, leaving a hole, flipped them right side out and edgestitched all along the edges, closing up the hole. Then I did sew along one of the quilted lines, just to prevent the two sides from separating too much when washed...just in case.


 I'm thinking I'm going to make one more, using only that vintage kitchen print. I LOVE that print. It's from a curtain I found in a giant mountain of fabric in a fabulous little flea market outside a tiny little mountain town in Southwest Colorado. I pray that store is still there next time I make my way in that direction...
