Yesterday I shared my post about the t-shirt yarn crochet baskets I made using yarn from Wool and the Gang. I also used that same t-shirt yarn (called Jersey Be Good) to make new bath mats for myself.
I had been wanting new bathroom mats for awhile. I basically have to have them in my bathroom because I live in a wacky old San Francisco apartment that has shifted and settled in odd ways over time so the floor is slanted.
This means that water always tends to leak out of my shower, no matter what a great shower curtain I get, and if it’s not caught by a bath mat then it slides down the floor and gets under the cabinet, where it can easily settle into mold if I don’t stay on top of it.
So the bathroom mats are for more than just looks in my house but I also want ones that are cute. I’d been using a post-stitch crochet mat that I’d made but it’s really better used as a blanket so I decided to use t-shirt yarn to create new bath mats.
I made two large granny square crochet bath mats that sit side-by-side right outside of the tub.
I also made a circular t-shirt yarn rug with a ruffled edge that sits in front of my sink.
