Up Cycled Bath Mats

Needing a new Bath Mat and not finding anything in the colors I needed, or the price range, prompted me to make my own!

Supplies: Two inexpensive or use contrasting Hand Towels, Two contrasting wash cloths

After ironing some iron on interfacing to the back of the wash cloths, I cut out the simple shapes and pinned to the contrasting towels.

I then appliqued the edges, sewed the towels back to back, and within an hour had a new bath mat for under $5.00
