Sewing Crafts

~Making My Own~

On Monday I sat in my home feeling the wind chill blow through the bottom of my door.. While my exterior doors are well insulated a draft was whirling through from the hall around my feet.. So I set too to make a Draft excluder.. As I looked around to see what I could use. I found an old pair of brown trousers of mine which I had put to one side for the charity bag…It only took me around an hour and a half and Bill and Ben were Born…

 Meet Bill my sausage dog draft excluder

Above is Bill who I made using the trouser legs I made ears and a tail and put button eyes and nose on him, then I set about making Ben, his brother who you can see Below.

Meet Bill and Ben

We can all of us turn our hands at making those pennies go further, and I’m sure if your browse around the web you can find many Craft Blogs which can give you great ideas..

Have you made any new things recently and why not share them with others..

I hope you enjoyed my little Post today as I’ve had a few days off from work its been good to blog and catch up with many of you..

Enjoy your special Day and Loved Ones..

    I remember when you made these, I was positive I commented then,if I had made draft dodgers like this the little ones would be forever playing with it. Btw, I love the fall scene in your header.

    What a great idea Sue 😀
    You gave me an idea for the house, where I live now. The doors let a lot of wind inside, the houses here are only builded to keep the warm outside, which makes them cold and very expensive to warm up in the winter. I have thought about which possibilities I could create to avoid all the cold inside. I will develop your idea, so it can fit in to the need here.
    Thank you for your nice inspiration Sue.
