Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Even  though today was warm, we had some cold weather last week, and, I'm pretty sure more is on the horizon!  
My hubby has been feeling a draft on his feet, so I decided to make some draft-stoppers.  This is one of the easiest projects to complete.  I used some leftover fabric and a couple of bags of rice.  Here's the "How-To":
First, cut your fabric a little longer than the width of your door & 8 inches wide.  
With right sides together, stitch around 3 sides.  I made 2 lines of stitching for a little extra security for all of that rice!
I clipped the corners and turned the tube right side out.
I filled it with about a bag and a half of rice.  The amount of rice needed will depend on the width of your door.
Filler up and stitch-up the end.  Don't forget to measure it by your door to get a perfect fit.  I also made a loop to hang it on the doorknob for when you needed to open the door!
That's it!   Just a few minutes to make and the draft was stopped!

 Did I mention how much I love the original doors in the Cottage?

Have a wonderful week and a very Happy Thanksgiving!
