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!
