DIY Idea: Turn An Old Comforter Into A Bath Mat

A Common Thread

We've all been there: an old sheet or comforter just doesn't work for us anymore and we're left trying to figure out what to do with all of that perfectly good fabric. Check out this great tutorial for turning it into a bathmat after the jump.

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!
