I know that drying racks aren't all the rage but I seriously can't image a kitchen without one.
For years I've used a ratty dishtowel underneath to catch the water but with all the fun stuff happening in my kitchen I figured it was high time to make something pretty.
Can you image a more perfect addition than red ticking stripe? I think not.
This project took a total of five minutes - seriously super easy.
One piece of ticking and one piece of an old towel. I put the two pieces right sides together and then sewed around the outside leaving an inch and a half gap to turn the fabric right side out. I simple closed the gap by machine stitching it closed. I like the look of a double stitched line so I ran around the outside edge a quarter inch from the original stitch line.
I made the drip mat extra long and wide since I tend to fill up the outside with small items.
The drying rack itself I found at Target a couple years ago.
I fell for it's small size, red feet and basket.
Have a great day,
