Earth Day Challenge: Part 3

I've often wondered how large an item I would have if I crocheted an entire sheet. This lovely vintage Vera sheet by Burlington measured 72 x 104 (inches) before hemming; the round rag rug you see in the photos measures almost 18" across!
I considered leaving it as is for my team challenge project, and marketing it as a large table coaster/rug or even a pet food bowl mat. That just isn't special enough, though, so I'm going bigger. I've had a brainstorm (look out!), and plan to make this a "message mat" for a totally unique and ultracool "green minded" rag rug. Stay tuned for updates! Tree huggers unite!
Do you have a favorite eco-friendly project or product to share?
All tips and comments are welcome!

I love the idea of it being a mat for a pet food or water bowl. :) Ours are always pushing their bowls around.

It looks awesome, Jennie! You're such a talented and creative lady. :)

I thought of you today as I washed dishes standing in front of my bare sink, wishing for a rug =) This looks very pretty. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
