I have made one of these drip/dishmats before but came acrossed another pattern which was very similar.
I wanted something fun to do so just used some fabrics in my stash pile.
I think it turned out nice. It's perfect to use for catching drips on dishes that come out of the dishwasher or for dishes and pans that are washed by hand. And yes, I wash by hand a lot. No need to run the dishwasher for a few dishes.
