I recently borrowed a book from the library called ‘Simple Sewing with Lola Nova’ which has loads of useful projects that are quite different to the ones that get recycled over and over. The blog is also worth a read! It was one of these projects that got me thinking about giving the bathroom a little makeover. The bathmat project was simple but I did change a few things to suit what I needed. I bought a plain grey hand towel from Walmart that would be used as the back of the mat. My plan needed to reflect the measurements of the towel so my patchwork squares were different to those in the book.
