You can make mats of varying sizes and colours and give them as souvenirs to your friends.

The things you need:

1. Pieces of old cloth

2. Adhesive

Step 1: Cut the cloth in three strips half-an-inch wide.

Step 2: Hold the strips together and tie a knot at the end.

Step 3: Plait the strips until you get a length of half-a-metre.

Step 4: Now keeping the knotted end in the center, wind the plaited strips. Stick the other end to the wound bundle.

This mat has many utilities – base for telephone and showpieces, wall hanging…You can use it just about anywhere in the house.
