My husband and I moved into a ground floor apartment two years ago. Two winters have passed. There are 2 doors into the foyer where our main door is located. The second entryway door is always left open creating a very chilly hall way in the winter. This lovely chill makes it's way into our apartment via under the door. Now with a baby who spends alot of time on the floor we had to fix the problem. Time for me to make a draft blocker also called a snake. If you have a machine and fabric this will take no time at all. It probably will take you longer to go to the store to pick up the rice.
1/4 yard of woven fabric that is 44" wide
I used a basic quilting cotton for one side and a ticking canvas for the other side
- measure the length of your door
- cut fabric to be this length with a width of 3 1/2 - two pieces needed
- lay fabric face to face and sew 3 sides with 1/2" seam allowance keeping a short side open
- turn inside out using a loop turner or a safety pin with a ribbon attached.
