Wow I love this idea! I might use it in my new apartment, thanks!
that is a brilliant idea! and it will actually absorb the water as you're standing on it, unlike the $20+ bath rugs you buy at the store.
I love this! Thanks for sharing!!
this looks doable, but I would recommended forgetting the scissors and going with a rotary cutter (like we use in quilting) can buy at any big box or craft store for little $ and it comes in handy with SO many projects.
Although I wonder how well this would stand up to repeated washings, I guess it would mostly depend on the quality of the grid and how tightly you tied the strips.
I LOVE THIS!!!! thanks for sharing!!
Holy Hannah that would take patience! Looks awesome though!
This is totally in one of my upcoming posts! I made one for my daughter's room using green T-shirts. Mine took a heck of a lot longer than 2 hrs though.
has been wonderful.definitely going to try.
Very, very cool! A great project for long car trips, beach, pool, etc. Thanks so much for sharing.
Good lord, someone get that woman a decent pair of scissors!
How does this hold up to washing? Can you put it in a washing machine?
I was also wondering about how to wash it? Obviously don't put in it the dryer but will it be okay in the washer?
I was wondering the same thing about the washing.
This is really beautiful. I've thought about doing it with t-shirts for my sons nursery. I'm concerned about making a bathmat though. How can it be washed? Something like would get pretty dingy and gross rather quickly I would think.
where did you get the grid mat? having trouble finding one.
This is awesome! :)
Great idea! Are the mats machine washable?

Looks like it might leave a lot of little white bits all around. You can see when cutting and/or tying that it leaves little 'crumbs'... that could get messy? Anyone try this and know how much towel bits are left behind?
I would love to try this... but how do I wash it?
I would love to try this..... but how do I wash it?
I love this!!!!!!! I really want to do this right now
I made one of these rugs, it turned out beautiful, however you didn't mention the mess it makes to cut the towels.....I had lint all over my house for days, till I finished.
How do you wash this bath rug?
This would also look really interesting with different color towels. Like red, aqua, white and green.
