I woke up this morning with a sudden urge to create a floor rug to go on the tiles under the kitchen sink.
Luckly I had a stash of Denyse Schmidt fabrics in home decorator weight cotton on hand and some non slip backing in the cupboard.
Here's the finished product and it feels lovely under my feet while doing the dishes.

The real test will be tonight when Heidi is let in.


  1. That looks really lovely! I suppose it being homedec it will wear and wash well too. Great colours.

  2. looks great - I've got one on my to do list

  3. Your rug is beautiful. I have not ever thought to do such a project!

  4. Ooh it's gorgeous! I just found out about a product - called roclon (or something like that lol) that you can use as a base for floor quilts that stabilizes them and stuff washes right off! It came to mind when I read the last part of your post - letting Heidi in! :) (i read about it over on if you're curious)
    I love all the fabrics you used in this too!!

  5. ack, that's too pretty to stand on and get dishwater on! LOL

  6. OMG I'm going to have to have a SERIOUS talk with your hubby when I visit! As much as I love the rug pleeeeaase for your own sanitity get a @#$%#@ DISHWASHER!!!!! I'll even bring dad to put in!!!! Luv U XXX LOL!!!!!

  7. That was so smart !! And lovely, too !!
    Now I will see the rest of what you make.
