I made a couple of doorstops over the weekend. Not the most exciting of projects I suppose but they were needed all the same. One for a door that kept shutting the kittens into a room and we only noticed when their calls got louder; the other to stop a wall from being banged into, each time the bedroom door was flung open. Again. And again!
The pattern came from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing. There are some fun things to make in this book, including picnic placemats which I made for my parents but that was long before my blogging days and no photos were taken. They went down a treat though! The doorstops were very easy and quick to do, only the quantity of beans specified was way off since I needed almost a kilo more than she said. I bought a six-kilo bag of dried kidney beans from a market which filled my two, but not entirely.
There is evidence of other crafting projects in the offing, only the sun has decided not to come out today and in any case, my model's at school!
Have a great week x
