Make Do and Mend Monday: Kitchen Rug Redo! 

After searching for new black and white kitchen rugs and coming up empty handed on either size or style, I decided to Make Do and Mend with what I have one hand.

 

Here is how I made it! I took this old kitchen mat, it’s standard carpet top with non-slip rubber back.  Pretty sure it came from Target.

I grabbed some indoor/outdoor stiff heavyweight canvas fabric I had on hand, I cut the fabric 1.25in larger on all sides of the rug.  Then wrapped the fabric around to the back side.  (Use wonder clips to hold it in place.)

Then I mitered each of the corners.  

Then I stitched it down all the way around about 3/4in from the edge.   I used a jeans needle and my walking foot and just took it slow.

Here is my new kitchen rug!  Exactly what I was looking for!
