This is quick and easy and lets you choose what colour would you like. The towels at Big W and Kmart are perfect. Not expensive and work great as a foot mat. With one towel you could get 3 foot mats. Cheap and best.
I have doubled up the towel to have added cushion feeling. You can just use it like that or double it up.


  • 1 Bath towel
  • 1 Scissor
  • 1 Needle and thread or glue gun


  1. Measure the towel for desired size and then cut a bit more than the required size. You could do rectangle, square or even a circle.
  2. Sew the corners or use a hot glue gun to seal the fray.
  3. You're ready with your customised foot mat.


You could use the beach towels if you want something to put in your kids bathroom.

  • Gutted I’ve thrown out so many towels wgen I could have used them for this! Next time!


  • A great idea and you are saving money!It looks fab!


  • Great Idea, I feel like this would be perfect for when towels get a bit ratty, just trim the ratty bits off sew up and ready to go!


  • Lovely, thanks so much for sharing


  • It’s a nice idea thanks for sharing


  • I’ve found a single thickness towel isn’t enough as a bath towel. I fold mine in half for extra absorbency


  • I love this idea! As a fan of upcycling this is great, especially with a busy bathroom, our bath mats get quite wet….these would wash and dry so much easier.


  • Thank you what a great idea as I sick of buying Bath Mats they intend to go mouldy will be using my old towels now thank you again


  • It turns out quite cheap this way indeed.


  • A great idea. I always have so many towels that this could be used for


  • A nice and simple idea, thanks for sharing.


  • A good idea; particularly when towels are on sale.


  • We have done this for years, fold old towels in half and used as bath mats. We just didn’t sew them up


  • got 3 more done now… space rocket for my son..
