Rather than tossing out an entire old comforter, the folks behind A Common Thread turned it into a bath mat with style and functionality. I can imagine doing this with any type of old sheet you have around the house:
A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and i were planning to throw out this huge king size comforter. It was just so much fabric though, that I couldn't bear to part with it. So it sat beside the doorway for about a week, before it came to me. Rag bath mat. So, i bought the gigantic knitting needles - size 19! - ripped the comforter, made yarn from the fabric strips, and knit it up into a mat for my bathroom floor!
