Help With the Dishes/Sunday Sampler

It’s snowing here in central Missouri this morning. Not our first, but another one of those little 1 inch varieties. Just enough to keep me home. The plus to that is I find things to do that need doing. Dishes are always on that list.

This Sunday Sampler, I decided to share a little something from the shop that you might be interested in using to dress up the kitchen counter while doing the dreaded dishes.

Should you decide to make one yourself, all you’ll need is some fabric sewn together in a pleasing pattern, cotton batting for the center, another fabric for you backing and some bias binding for your edge finish. I would recommend the cotton batting for good absorption. You might also upcycle an old towel or cotton blanket for the middle layer. Be creative!

Here’s a little peek at the backing and binding.

In case the dish mat is not your thing, there are a few other ideas for its use.

  1. Dresser Scarf
  2. Candle Mat
  3. Place mat
  4. Doll blanket
  5. Wall hanger
  6. Pet Dish Placemat
  7. Snack Mat
  8. Mug Rug
