Bath towels are not permanent, and afterseveral years of active use lose their appearance, sometimes they are wiped or even torn. What to do with them? Someone makes dust rags out of them, someone throws them away, and we suggest making a soft mat out of old towels in the bathroom, the toilet or the hallway! A small and simple master class will help in this. In order to make a mat of towels with your own hands, you will need:
- 3-4 large (or small) terry towels (the old terry dressing gown also fits);
- Needle and thread;
- good mood!
How to make a mat of towels with your own hands: work progress
⇒ Step 1. The mat can be monophonic or multicolored, depending on the source material. Take the towels and cut them into long strips 6-8 cm wide. The size and thickness of the rug will again depend on what kind of towels you have, how many of them you will cut the width of the strip. ⇒ Step 2. We will not invent a bicycle. The basis of the rug - an ordinary "pigtail" of three strips of a towel. The variant of work can be two: or you weave individual pigtails, and then they sew, or first stitch the strips together, and then from them weave a long braid. The second option in ready-made form looks more neat and beautiful, as the joints of individual braids are not visible. ⇒ Step 3. In any case, when weaving braids, use pins so that the weave does not warp, in every 10-15 cm, imperceptibly fasten the weave from the reverse side of the thread. ⇒ Step 4. When the pigtail is ready - start twisting it in a circle from the center, fixing it with a thread. All! We put a mat of towels in the bathroom and use it! It will be great if the color of the rug is harmoniously combined with the furniture in the bathroom. More about accessories and furniture for the bathroom.
