We needed a bathmat for our bathroom. Fuzzy things seem to get grungy right away, so I wanted to try something hopefully more sturdy. Laura and I went to Lexington for the day last weekend and I found these water hyacinth placemats on clearance on Target- don't they look knitted?
I stitched them carefully together using hemp twine.
And added it to my bathroom.
I am not sure how it will hold up, but it was a super-cheap experiment.
