Open Sesame Fabric Doorstop

In summer we really need a doorstop. When the patio door is open in the kitchen and the front door is open as well it creates a nice breeze.  However, the breeze will blow the front door shut or at least make it move so it becomes and obstacle when coming down the steps.

I did what I usually do in these situations; I googled 'free doorstop patterns to sew'.  I clicked on the images option because I believe that a picture says a 1,000 words and I came across this love pattern by Wolf and Willow

The pattern is called Open Sesame Fabric Doorstop and you can find the downloadible pattern and instructions here. It was easy to make and didn't take up much fabric although I did use a lot more rice to fill it than the instructions state. As crazy as it sounds, I bought a giant sack of rice from our local warehouse store (Sam's Club) last year when I made some boo-boo bags.  So I had plenty of leftovers for this project.  Rice is pretty cheap so it wasn't a big deal to use a bunch of it.

I absolutely love how it turned out.
