I'm sure most of you guys have seen the wine cork bath mat floating around the web fairly recently. Inspired by by this I wanted to make my own version of the wine cork bath mat. I cut all the corks lengthwise using my regular kitchen knife (and only cut myself once!). The corks are then hot glued to a non-slip mat which I had sewed the fabric border on the edge. I had originally made this mat without the border but it didn't quite look right so I added the edging. This isn't the sturdiest thing ever so using it as a welcome mat may not be the best idea (unless you want corks disappearing as people trample over it and ending up all over your house) but I think it'd work great in a kitchen or bathroom. My cats also liked using this as a scratching pad so I think this will best used as a Christmas gift as I really don't want it to be destroyed.

There is no right or wrong, when it comes to making art. Making sure that you have fun is the most important part. -Mickey Mouse

This looks awesome, great job!
And kudos for only cutting yourself once, I swear everytime I even think of using a knife in relation to crafting I cut myself!
