Hello out there, I am desperately hoping someone can help me with my little dilema!
In our bathroom we have a rather large pile of towels laid out on the floor permanently for when we get my daughter out of the bath (she is 14months old) but I did a huge clean out of the room and decided to make something a bit easier to use and less washing of towels after they get walked all over.
I came up with the idea of using some fabric I have which is plastic quilted with a thin layer of wadding inbetween. Used for making change mats etc...
I was going to sew a few old towels on top of that to make a little mat which I can just hang up to dry much easier.
But then I was sorting through my stash and found a super soft felt which I thought might be a bit nicer than towelling for my girl. Only problem is that it is slightly waterproof so the water wont absorb into it.....
We do lie her towel down on top and attempt to dry her off first (she's a wriggler!) but then i pull it out when it comes to her clothes....So she isnt lying on wet towel in her pajamas.
So I guess my question is, what order should I do the fabric?
Id really like the use the felt even as just padding under the towel as it has sat in my stash for years and I really dont like the print at all, I bought it to make something for a friend but bought way too much. (Thats what insane specials do to me!)
I'm leaning towards the plastic, then felt then towel, just so any extra water would get absorbed by the towel on top...... But the felt is so much softer.
Ah help please!
(Sorry for the ginormous essay of a question!)
