      Great idea for a cheap, DIY bath mat!! Use raggedy old towels cut into strips, and then just loop 'em on some gridded matting! Super absorbent and super cheap. I want to do this. :D #towels #rug

      DIY eco-friendly repurposed bath rug. I don't think I have the patience for this one, but it's a cool idea. :)

      DIY Rag Rug. Use cut up towels to make a bathmat, or cut up tees for a colorful area rug or mudroom doormat. Just toss in the washer when it gets dirty. @ Do It Yourself Remodeling Ideas

      PIXEI's Picture Blog: DIY Eco Bath Mat Basically, it's rug-hooking with strips of old towels. This might be a fun project. Gather old towels in color families to make gifts for people. LOVE this idea!


      Perhaps in the whirlwind that is Spring Cleaning, you've encountered some towels that have seen better days.  Before you throw them away, consider repurposing them as an eco-chic bath mat!   The style of this mat takes inspiration from rag rugs but, with the use of towels, is better suited for the bathroom.  I mean, what could be more absorbant than a billowing pile of towels beneath your feet?  Nothing. This project is easy and only requires 2 materials: old towels and gridded matting (sometimes called anti-slip matting). For more instructions or to see the whole process, check out this video...
