I LOVE MAKING FLOOR MATS. They are unusually imperfect but they are really for your floor. Everyone will want to know where you got such a great floor piece...........they are the way.
This is a rough of a floor mat which was eventually made. The process is an arduous one......priming artist's canvass, turning cotton material into a paper-like substance, design, modge podge, acrylic finish and wax. Very labor intensive but so worth it when you see the finished project. I will be posting ones for sale soon.
This is the finished product!
Before I write anything else, I must give full credit to the incredible artist, Ellen Highsmith, who taught me how to make floor mats......she called them floor quilts primarily because her designs were quiltlike. Mine usually seem to be less artistic........more like mats! They are fun, give a wonderful boost to floors (or walls) and can withstand dogs and children.
This is a floor mat I made for a couple and their two children who bought a house through me ( I am also a realtor!). One of the children, Nobi, inspired me with his love of a lion on a doorknob at a particular house. I was so happy when they did, in fact, end up buying that house.
These can be custom ordered with house number
This is a floor mat that I made for my husband, Bill, for his boat. We no longer have the boat but we do have the floor mat. Anyone interested?
