I made this doorstop for my kids’ room using the pattern in Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing book and left over IKEA curtain fabric. I love that this pattern calls for a 5 lb bag of dried beans to fill the doorstop…so cheap and practical. I added some polyfil in the top to help hold its shape. This was a super simple and quick project. I love those instant gratification projects!
