Description

(sorry about the squishy photo, not sure how to fix it – but you can see the original if you click the “view all” link!)

The pattern comes from The Liberty Book of Home Sewing.

The fabric is a laminated cotton purchased from Oil Cloth Addict on Etsy. I hadn’t previously sewn with laminated cotton — I found it easiest to use when the laminated side was facing up on the sewing machine. The pattern suggests using corduroy but I thought laminated cotton was a better choice so the doorstop would be water resistant.

I filled the doorstop with 2kg of “colourful sand” from the garden section of a hardware store, again a better choice for outdoor use than rice or sugar.
