    Dear friends Iam an occasional stitcher some time back i stitched about 15+ floor mats---all in regular use some Iam posting,
    these are made of old cotton sarees folded--and covered by jeans leg cloth --of my sons torn pants of jeans--some i even filled with old towels,
    since i have two dogs ---these are very useful--near bathroom doors, kitchen doors, and bed floors etc
    these are only for ideas--if you can do so you can stitch even by hand.........

    Very good idea, Malliga, for converting the old jeans into an useful door mat. Thanks for sharing the idea.
