It's almost wrapping your home in its very own warm quilt. If you don't have time or money to fix your drafts this season, you can at least fix up a little Low-Cost Draft Blocker to keep you and your family cozy.

Low-Cost Draft Blocker

Materials:

  • Scissors
  • Fabric (approximately length of door)
  • Sewing needle
  • Thread
  • Poly pellets, sand, rice, beans, or crushed walnuts

Instructions:

  1. Cut a long tube of fabric– approximately: length of door- I cut my piece 34″ long X 8″
     
  2.  Fold in half the long way- right sides facing
     
  3.  Sew along the two ends and the long side– leaving a 2 1/2″ opening for turning. If you want box ends- follow these tutorials, then continue
     
  4.  Turn right sides out and stuff firmly.  I used poly pellets {those are the little plastic balls you can stuff dolls and plushies with} You can use sand,rice, beans or crushed walnuts for weight {so the draft doesn’t blow it away}
     
  5.  Stitch the opening closed with a ladder stitch.
