A nice quick project

This is a bit of a cheat as I made this a while ago but I do like it and sometimes a super quick project is just what you need. I do love Clothkits stuff, lovely bold designs, I was a graphic designer many moons ago and I love simple and clean images. Also cord, I love cord and they have loads and nice strong colours too. So this project has all these things and apart from a bit of a faff with stitching the base of the doorstop it was easy peasy.




It's also a great project for using up bits and bobs of fabric stash so here are a few tutorials on how to make your own doorstop.

This one is a bit different, it uses sisal rope, not sewing but it looks great I think.
