I made him from about half of a vintage table cloth (1.49 from the charity shop Cheesy), cut into a long thin rectangle, sewn up the middle, I hand sewed some felt eyes on, cut out a felt tounge then turned it inside out and sewed the curve to make his head.



How is he eco friendly I hear you ask, well, he's stuffed with all the very small scraps from other sewing projects, old holey socks and some old pants and bras (clean, very clean I might add!) so they're not going into landfill! He's half full at the moment, I need to find some more stuff to put in him then I can sew up his bottom. He's also eco friendly cos he's a draught excluder thingy to go by draughty doors - he's quite heavy so I'm hoping the denser he is the more draughts he'll absorb!



Thankssssssssssssssssssss for looking!
