Learn how to make a DIY dog bowl mat with a free sewing pattern. Keep the floor clean and dry with this beginner sewing project.
We have wood floors in our kitchen, and I always worry about the wood getting ruined. I hated picking up the bowls and wiping underneath over and over again everyday.
I made a DIY dog bowl mat (with a free sewing pattern!) to catch the crumbs and water. It’s absorbant and the bottom is waterproof so moisture can’t get through.
– cotton canvas – fusible interfacing – fusible fleece – vinyl, oilcloth, laminated cotton, or pleather
Use the sewing pattern to cut out one piece from canvas, waterproof fabric, fusible interfacing, and fusible fleece.
Apply the interfacing to the back of the canvas fabric. Apply the fusible fleece to the interfacing so there are three layers all fused together.
Place the canvas fabric right sides together with the waterproof piece. Clip around the outside.
