Sweatshirt

I promise that I'm not going to blog about weaving all the time, but I tried a new fabric today. I had these pieces of sweatshirt material that I was never going to use.




I turned about half of it into this. The color placement is purposely random.



I don't know how it will wash, since it was hard not to stretch the fabric as I worked it in. I also don't know what I'll do with it. I have a little pink in one bathroom. Maybe it would be a nice absorbent mat in front of the shower?

The bonus is that I have one less pile on my sewing machine table.

Ooooh, i love it. Can you make one from terrycloth- like old, towels? Would terry weave? THAT would be great for the bathroom!
