Delightful doorstops

Aren’t these cute???

We have DESPERATELY needed decent doorstops in our house (ooo! more ‘D’s!). The kiddies’ door just wouldn’t stay open and we have used a toddle shoe for the past year. I was using a phone book for the front door, but the bubba started munching on that. And the back door doorstop seemed fascinating to him too, and now I just can’t find it.

These cuties were so easy and I whipped all three of them up in half an hour or so. I used scraps of fabric and a 2kg bag of cheap rice did the three of them. You can find the fantastic tutorial here at ‘So Sue’. I made the larger ones using 9×9″ squares, with about 4 cups of rice.

Highly recommended if you are in a desperate doorstop situation as I was!
