Floor mat

Some time ago I cut one of my old bed linen into a long band and because my arm is much better now, I tried to crochet again and made this floor mat. (Thank you all for your kind words regarding my arm :)) Who would think that this relatively small mat (50 x 40cm = about 20 x 16 inch) was once a whole bed linen?! But I think it's still practical, 'cause it can be washed really hot in the machine and is surely very long-lasting.

It's such a smart idea to re-use a bed linen. We never did any good with our older linen. I think this can work so well!

Enjoy your mat.
Glad your arm is better now.
