flannel bathmat = warm toes
I started this endeavour a few months back. At the time I was feeling particularly creative and experimental, but unfortunately my head was spinning with the flu. I was in an absolute stupor when I started this project. I thought I was a genius for coming up with the idea of crafting an overnight bag out of old pjs. Pure genius! I stripped some flannelette and grabbed my chunkiest knitting needles. I don't even know what size they are. Just big.
A couple of days later, when the flu haze began to clear and the codrals were actually working... I realised that this was not the best thought out plan. As a bag it was floppy and heavy and impractical. I threw it on the floor in disgust! Then tried to forget about it.
While walking across the room I trod on it. I was barefoot, as usual. Mmmmm.... it felt divine on my toes. All thick and sgushy. I know that's not a real word... but it's descriptive nonetheless. It was so comfy. I wanted to stand on it forever!
And so the bathmat was born. I love it. Machine washable. Goes in the tumble dryer too. In fact, I'll let you in on a little secret. When it comes out of the dryer, I pop it straight down on the floor in the laundry... then let my naked toes luxuriate on it. Mmmmm. Warm, soft, sgushy. An absolute treat. Small pleasures!
