Spring is around the corner and it’s time to warm up the décor in preparation of bright sunny days. This modern and fun bathmat would be perfect addition to your new bathroom makeover. The bathmat is practical and stylish and a great conversation piece. Choose your own vibrant contrasting colors to suit your home design style. I made this in black and white to ensure that the bold slogan stands out. **Don’t forget to line the bathmat with a non-slip liner underneath; I used Contact Brand Grip Shelf Liner.**
The yarn I have used is Bernat Handicrafter Cotton, which is available in multiple colors and various skein sizes. Some of the colors include a scent which may not be ideal for those with sensitivity to smells, as it can be overpowering. You can substitute with any worsted weight (4) cotton yarn that matches the gauge. Some yarns that are comparable are: Lily Sugar n’ Cream, Hobbii Rainbow Cotton 8/8, Hobby Lobby Crafters Secret Cotton, Paintbox Yarns Recycled Cotton and Peaches & Cream.
Cotton yarn is best for projects where there would be high absorption of water, however can be stiff to work with compared to other yarns. Make sure to give your hands a break if they need it.

Tapestry crochet is done using the basic single crochet stitch, and a technique of holding 2 strands of yarn. The tutorial below will walk you through all the basics while you make a little tree sampler! If this is your first time trying tapestry crochet, I highly recommend making the tree sampler first. This will give you some practice with holding both strands of yarn and getting your tension right before starting a large project.
