Door Draft Stopper

Mary Linda BittleMary Linda Bittle Posts: 619 ✭✭✭✭

I scored some free scraps of quilted fabric and some partial bags of polyester stuffing recently. Not enough for even a lap quilt, but enough to make door draft stoppers for the front and back doors.

I just machine-sewed a tube from the quilted fabric, turned it right side out, and stuffed loosely with the polyester. Then I sewed the top closed by hand. And I added a ribbon hanger so that I can hang them on the back of the door when not needed. They are not pretty, but they do stop the drafts!

    Using old concert Ts, sew them end to end, and cut where necessary having a narrow tube then I filled it with sand from a beach. Sewed all the seams, and placed it at the bottom of a door, and no more draft under the door. Use a nice-looking fabric and stuff it with what you have. There were moths at the place where I used sand, and it made the hallway appear nice, well kept, like a piece of art. Enjoy with love

    When I was a kid my mom acquired several draft stoppers made from neckties. I think someone had made them for a craft sale/fundraiser? Anyhow, they looked like snakes. We did use them around doors in the winter, but mostly we used them for cat toys. That was fun.

    I have a dog that has decided draft stoppers are chew toys, they last one season. Thanks for the reminder to put some new ones together, I need them.
