Foot Mat With Old Saree


I have seen foot mats with old sarees in a magazine n tried it out at home...its very easy n will take few hours to finish this mat, wat u need to do is just to cut the sarees as long strips, braid them as long thread, fold n turn in circular , stitch the ends of the mat...can use them for bathrooms, also as table mat etc...

Hey priya,

Thats a neat idea. I have some dupattas lying useless may be I can use that for this... I do not want to use the saree as I can donate that here in india to my main atleast...
