I think I’m just in time for this month’s ScrapHappy , prompted as usual by Kate down under. It’s only 10h42 here in South Africa, so perhaps for some of you it’s not even Sunday yet.
A very very quick make! A draught excluder, or door snake if you prefer, about 75cm long and about 34 cm in diameter, made from nine pieces of offcuts from cushions. It’s filled with cat litter because (a) it makes it nice and heavy, and (b) I didn’t have anything else at hand. It’s turned out a little too short for the width of my front door plus the side panel, but no draught gets under the panel bit so I’m not bothered. A finished make is a finished make is a finished make, right?! :)
Lots of other people make gorgeous things from scraps. Please see Kate’s link above, for an update on her amazing scrap hexie quilt, and for links to other creative people.
Very pretty and good idea re the cat litter filling. In a desperate moment, if you run out of cat litter, you could always make a little hole in it to fill the kitty litter box!
Love the door snake, great fabrics. And I also admire your filling improv – why on earth not cat litter, it’s nice and inert and as you say, heavy.
Thought it was a pretty darn fine idea myself, thank you!
Love those colours.
Me too :)
a simple, old fashion fix and very pretty too.
What a good, quick project! Cat litter sounds like a good idea for keeping the door snake in place too. I wouldn’t have thought of that. :-)
Wonder if the cat liter company would like to know of this potential use for its product?
Clever and very smart looking use of scraps, and should you run out of toilet paper……
Seriously I really like your snake.
You just keep on amazing me with your cleverness. :) Hugs, Tamara
Very useful and clever idea to use cat litter.
Lovely mix of fabrics Jill
