Is that what you would call this? It started out as a bath matt, but I just couldn't bring myself to throw it on the floor. There is a spot next to the sink that I set all of the hand washed items to dry - you know, the pots, pans and other things that don't go in the dishwasher. I usually end up throwing a tea towel up there to soak up all of the water, but I think this will do the job and look fabulous. The kids all agree that I should make a big one for snuggling.
My inspiration was a stack of the boys old jeans that I couldn't bring myself to throw out. With the knees blown out and stains here and there, they weren't good enough to thrift, so I just piled them up in the laundry room. The chick was inspired by something, a quilt maybe, that Amanda had done a while back.
Some fun machine and hand stitching, a thrifted sheet for the back and viola - Counter Matt/Quilt.
Sometimes, it's just the little things in life isn't it? A little counter matt with your kids jeans and a little chick to make you smile while you wash those dreaded dishes.
