The linen rack is one of the sections I check religiously whenever I’m at the thrift store. And when I came across a complete set of these woven placemats, I knew I wanted to bring them home.

But not for their intended purpose.

Instead I stitched a couple together to add a splash of color as an upcycled DIY bath mat.

To make your own all you need is two placemats, some colorful embroidery thread, and a sewing needle.

Line the mats up and zig zag stitch all the way down, making sure to knot the thread at the beginning and end.

How do you keep it from sliding around?

Hi Linda! I either use a rug pad (they're so cheap at IKEA or Dollar Tree) OR spare grip tape if I have it OR I place dabs of hot glue at strategic areas on the back. If I use the hot glue, I wash it normally and just replace it as it wears off. :D
