How to Make a Doorstop

From the Blogger: "How to make a fabric doorstop! This just takes two squares of fabric and is a really easy sewing tutorial for beginners. You can sew one in 30 minutes or less and it would also be a great, fun sewing project for a tween or teen to make and match their room. Fill it with poly pellets to keep it machine washable but heavy enough to hold doors open or shut. This is a modern shape and looks great!"

Such a simple everyday thing but just look how pretty it is! And one can make it in a fabric to blend in with the decor color/s. I am going to be a few for our home because we tend to use anything at all, a shoe or heavy ornament or whatever is handy, to keep doors open.

This pyramid shape doorstop is perfect. A unique idea to keep a pesky door from closing whenever a breeze comes through but the door needs to stay open. If no poly pellets are available to fill the shape, I imagine rice would as well to add weight to the door stop.

When I first saw that this was a doorstop pattern I was thinking of those long tubes which are really for drafts! But these little buggers are so super simple to make and do the job nicely. I have seen these same triangle designs done on a smaller scale and used for fabric weights when cutting pattern pieces for fabrics that do not pin well or need weight to keep it even. These would work as bean toss game throws too! Versatile and fun!
