I have seen a few cute Dish Mats surfing the net and knew I wanted to make myself one of them. I bit the bullet and purchased a Walking Foot for my sewing machine. GEEZ, those are pricey, this one was $80 but worth every penny. My new gadget made this project so easy. You see, the bottom of this mat is a hand towel. And when you use a regular foot on your machine, it is very difficult for the towel to feed through the machine own feed dogs. And for those of you who have followed my blog, I used my favorite fabric and it goes great in my kitchen. I have brown tile counters. I just LOVE IT!!!! It is Kaufman Metro Market Apples Green/Brown. I can't get enough of this fabric. My next project is to make some placemats with it. Did I tell you... I LOVE THIS FABRIC!
I used a white hand towel for the bottom so it will be absorbent
