A sweet little crocheted Hexie showermat

Today I quickly wanted to share a sweet little hexie shower mat that I finished a few weeks ago. I am quite a neutral kinda girl, especially when it comes to the bathrooms, I like whites, greys and muted colours, so I figured it might be time to step out a little and inject a spot of colour into our very grey shower room.



I used Drops Paris yet again largely because I know exactly what I am going to end up with. I know from experience that my stool covers and step cover get a great deal of daily use, which means they are often hanging on the washing line and always come out looking like new. A shower mat is something that you want to wash often so this is the perfect yarn for the job. It has already been washed and as expected it came out looking even better than when it went in.



So basically it is 29 hexies all sewn together or join as you go and you end up with a rather lovely shower or bath mat. 



In fact we are loving it so much that I will soon have to make one for the bath room. They really don't take that long to throw together (if you ignore sewing in those pesky ends!). 


A short and sweet post today. Wishing you all a fantabulous day!


Warm Wishes

  6. It's really lovely, I'm always inspired by this kind of pretty and colourful crochet. I really need to learn how to do this stuff. I'd happily make one for our bathroom if I could. CJ xx

  16. This is beautiful! I've been needing to make a new showermat for the girls' bathroom - the crocheted one I made a few years ago is looking terribly worn - and this is just the ticket! I love the Drops recommendation as well, I bet it is ideal for the job! Thanks so much for sharing this, I think my next WIP has been decided...Chrissie xxx
