July Craft Challenge

July Craft Challenge – incorporate fabric into a craft!

For the Third Monday of every month, Amelia (my friend and fellow blogger) and I do a project or post based on one chosen DIY craft or theme, then we share our results and hopefully have inspired you to join the challenge. (The links to our challenge results can be found at the end of this post.)

Last month was our embroidery hoop challenge and the picture to the left shows the laundry lint bag I made. I used some fabric from my stash in that challenge so technically it could count as my July craft too but I had something else in mind when I scored these adorable little bath mats at my local Dollar Tree for $1.25 each.


I thought they would make awesome little pillows to use on my Adirondack chairs on my back deck.  They were super easy and fast to make.  I had an old tablecloth that I couldn’t decide what to do with so it came in pretty handy for this project as I cut two pieces from it the same size as the bathmats to use as the backsides of my pillows.
