Also, because it's old, not every door shuts tightly. And now that the snow is starting to swirl outside I can really feel all that cold air trying to make it's way through the basement door, into the rest of the house.
So, I picked up this cute vintage draft catcher pattern at a second hand store and thought it would be perfect to put in front of my basement door. I can't find a date on the envelope but I'm sure it must be from the 70's. It just has the look and feel to me. (By the way, did you know that you can order archived Kwik Sew patterns from the 70's on their website???? So cool)
The only thing I would warn you about if you tackle a similar project is to stay away from the foam chips. If you ever have to stuff anything and you can use something else...DO IT! I will avoid using them again at all costs. They are the messiest and most annoying thing ever. They must be made up of at least 90% static cling. They were from one end of my house to the other until I rolled out the Dyson~
I usually only share my weekend tutorials in all the linky parties throughout the week, but I like this project so much I think I'll share it too. You can check out the linky parties by clicking the tab at the top of the page.
