I started quilting... To be made into floor mats...
Yes, floor mats...
Out of fabric scraps and old cloth nappies which I have in abundance... see, I'm so frugal, hahaha.
Before this, we were using thick woven mats bought from Ikea. I was always huffing and puffing during the monthly scrubbing and rinsing... and I thought I'm not going to do this anymore. So I made floor mats... which are a dream to wash... easy to scrub, easy to rinse and dry pretty fast too. And they feel so soft and smooth under our feet.
The first one I made is for the washroom downstairs...Close upAnd this one's for our room...Behind
The bindingI'm currently working on another one for our kitchen, which may take awhile before it's done. For a first timer, I have lots to learn... Have you done quilting before? How do you prevent the back fabric from puckering? I'm still using my current machine needle; do you need to change the machine needle for quilting?
