Erica from B is for Boy shares a tutorial on her blog showing how to make an absorbant dish drying mat to put by your kitchen sink. The top is made from a favorite fabric print, while the towel layer underneath will absorb the water that drips from the dishes. This is a much more attractive option than the old-school plastic drying rack, and it folds up for easy storage when not in use. Get the tutorial.
