Here is my contribution to the Earth Day: A doormat made out of jute bags.
The rice we buy comes in 10LB jute bags. I cut open a couple of those jute bags to use them a layers for the doormat. I used a yard of jute fabric as a topper for the mat.
I joined smaller pieces of the jute-bag fabric by hand. Then joined all the layers together. At regular widths of 4-inches, I made stitches along the length of the fabric. This is to make the doormat more sturdy.
Using a colorful shiny fabric, I made ruffles and attached it to the doormat at the centre.I cut the same shiny fabric into thin long strips and attached them as borders to four edges of the mat.
The doormat is reversible too! Like it? :)
