The Patchwork Mat

This past summer I asked my sister-in-law if she had any clothes I could recycled into toys. She gave me her favorite travel shirt that she used to wear everywhere she traveled, hiked, rode horseback, etc. She wore it last when she was in China. That royal blue shirt has been places and it was really worn out, and she thought I could make something of it instead of just throwing it away. She didn't know I secretly wanted to make something for her.


She can use this patchwork mat in the kitchen, bathroom, entrance door, by her bed, etc. All of the fabric here is thrifted or recycled.


Thanks Sis, for opening your door to us and being such a great host everytime we visit. We all feel taken care of when we are around you. Happy birthday!
