After finding many old doona covers, origins unknown, I have decided to put them to use because theyre either too old to give away or too pretty to want to part with.
Because I hate waste and useless things I am converting them into something useful. This is my first sheet project of the year.
Remove frills, edges where there is thick seams and press studs/velcro.
Start playing the Old Devo "Crack that whip" song in your head but change the words to "Rip that Sheet"
Cut at 3 cm intervals a 1 cm deep cut along the top edge of your doona then start ripping the strips.
Row 1 till the end is knit one purl one. length varies depending on your preference or sheet strip quantity.
Bath Mat measures 38cm x 68 cm and is 1 cm thick. That's pretty darn thick ya know and its worth it when you feel how yummy it is on your feet.
To make it larger you could use more sheeting but my aim was 1 discarded Doona Cover with minimal scraps and I am pretty pleased with the result.
If you make one please share your results and methods if it was different.
Oh and because it is so thick, allow plenty of drying time after it becomes wet:)
