Another Door Thing

This time a door stop. The house I am living in has many doors and a lot of them have no catch to hold them open and prevent slamming. I have used all manner of items to date - pot plants, wooden wedges, rocks....but I finally made a fabric "bag" door stop today, using some screen printed calico (my grass tree in red) with a red fabric lining, and basing the pattern on this tutorial found at Shabby Art Boutique. A bit different to the usual pyramid doorstop.

The door stop is filled with sand placed in a couple of resealable plastic sandwich bags (each about 1/2 full) - easy to remove when the door stop needs a wash (I also used this method to fill the door snake).
