The coldest air so far this winter is coming to our town in a couple of days. I've been putting off this project for a year, and figure now is as good of a time as any to check this one off my to-do list.
I had not looked online to see how others made these blockers. I was simply in a home improvement store last year, saw the double sided Door Draft Blockers and didn't want to pay the $10+ for one set, but decided I could make a bean bag type of draft blocker myself. As I walked through the isles of the store, being the cold time of the year, I found in the middle of the isle a display of pipe insulators, 4 for under $5.00. .......Light Bulb! (and today, I see online someone already had that Light Bulb come on.)
Here's the way I put mine together:
Ideas: Make these to match your carpet/flooring. You might not want to have a contrasting color.
Keep your cost down and use fabric you already have on hand.
i.e. old clothes, blue jeans, old curtains, table cloth and best of all old blankets.
Knits and fleece work best because you don't have to worry about finishing edges.
