My last post described at length how I am trying to waste less through my business this year. With our recent cold snap in the single digits, it was clear that we needed more than one draft dodger in our house!
I still have PLENTY of this:
And I had a piece of fabric that has colors from most of the downstairs rooms in my house. I sewed up a quick tube and started stuffing.
The beauty of making things yourself is that you can make it exactly the way you want. This fits the entryway perfectly!
The next project I have in mind for the scrappy stuffing is weights for my items to use at outdoor fairs. Wind is an issue when you try to line up lightweight zippered pouches neatly on a shelf. By making custom-sized weights with materials I already have on hand, it's an economical and eco-friendly solution to an issue that occurred many times last year. Win win!
