This has been on my TO DO LIST for a while and I thought I’d better get on it as the cool weather will be fast approaching. I wanted one specifically for the door at the end of the hall that joins the garage and backyard.

It was really very easy. I measured my door {32″ long by 5.5 ” deep} and cut my material {I used a drop cloth from Home Depot} and cut it leaving an extra 1.5 inches allowance on each side. Then I got out the sewing machine and ran two seems along both long sides and one of the ends. I turned it right side out and then added my graphic from the GRAPHICS FAIRY using Citra Solv {see how to transfer images here}.

I bought the cheapest big bag of rice I could find and started scooping it in.

I was amazed… it took pretty much the whole bag of rice to fill it!

I closed it up by folding the ends under and hand stitching them together using a light ivory thread to match the fabric. Voila!

Pretty cool! It sure beats an old raggy towel… which is what my husband was using last winter!
