Make Your Own Draught Stop
Got a breezy gap underneath the door? Here’s a crafty solution
that couldn’t be simpler.
You will need:
🍃 About half a metre of thick, strong fabric (needs to be at least a metre wide)
🍃 About 5kg rice
🍃 Sewing machine
🍃 Measuring tape
1. Measure your doorway.
2. Cut your fabric to size —the width of your doorway plus 5cm for seam allowance for the length and about 35cm wide.
3. Fold your fabric right sides together long ways and sew, closing off one end and sewing down the full length of the fabric, leaving one end open. Sew again for extra reinforcement.
4. Turn right-side out. Reinforce the end with two rows of topstitching. This will then match the finish on the other end.
5. Fill with rice.
6. Fold in the edge of the open end and stitch closed with two rows of topstitching.
