Table mats are cool and beautiful additions to the home. They come in all shapes, sizes and designs some more beautiful than others. If you are a really artistic person, they come in as great craft pieces for amazing craft projects. There are simple things you can do to make cool items using your regular home table mats.
- Make a clutch bag
There are woven mats that have great tassel- like edges. These are great when used to make a clutch for yourself or as a gift for someone else. Depending on the color of the mat, they are great accessories that will match with almost everything in an individual’s wardrobe. All you will need is a great zipper, embroidery floss, leather scrap for the front pocket and double fold tape. Sew two mats together or fold one up and you have a great clutch.
- Make instant art
If you have table mats in your home or know a place to get them at a really cheap price, then you no longer have an excuse for why your walls look so bare. Use them as instant art by finding a pattern and design you like and put in in a frame.
- Make your own shopping bag
Plastic shopping bags are neither environmentally friendly nor classy to carry around. Make your own shopping bag by finding robust mats that are waterproof and indestructible. Sew a couple together so you have a shopping bag as big as you desire, add a few handles and there you have it, a cool shopping bag.
