Last year, I came across a good deal on a memory foam bath mat and I love it, but I have one tiny problem with it... Every time one of us steps out of the shower onto it with wet feet, I have to some in 10 minutes later to stand on a soggy mat to do my hair.
I decided to try and make a cover for the mat with a thin towel so it would serve it's purpose for the water but still have the memory foam-feel.
I snagged a good-feeling towel at target on sale and it still matched the bathroom!
I laid the towel flat and the mat on top of it face down to mark where it would need to be folded and sewed.
And did the same for the other sides and started sewing right on the edges to leave a slit in the middle for the mat to slip in and out.
*NOTE* I tried using the No-Sew trick with the binding tape and an iron, but the tape could never get hot enough through the towel to bind; And you can use a sewing machine, but mine wasn't heavy duty enough to go through the towel either, so I had to patiently hand sew this.*
Now that both of the edges are sewn, the mat can just slip inside of the towel cover!
The cover can be taken off and washed whenever it gets a little dirty and the bath mat won't stay gross when it gets wet!
