... or twin draft guard, or under the door draft blocker... or whatever you want to call it!
For some reason my pantry is FREEZING and there is a giant gap between the door and the floor. I have been thinking (for 2 years
) that it needs a draft dodger to block the cold, but wanted something that would stay in place since we are in and out of the pantry all day long. I couldn't wrap my brain around how to make one of those draft dodgers that slip under the door... until today! Suddenly, the light bulb went off and I was inspired! I had this finished in probably less than 30 mins (though I wasn't paying attention to the time).
Enough jibber-jabber. Here's pics:

It just slips under the door.
Oliver was attacking it as I opened and shut the door. I guess it doubles as a kitty toy
See? It blocks the draft very nicely! Even Oliver approves.
I made it out of fleece and filled the tubes with dried corn. Why? No reason; it's just what I had sitting around. I bought dried corn to make heat packs as Christmas gifts. It only comes in 50 lb bags, so I have tons left over.
Plus I like the weight of it. It makes me feel like it is more likely to stay put and keep doing it's job: blocking those drafts!
It doesn't match my kitchen, but that's okay. It was my prototype, and now my toes don't freeze every time I walk near the pantry!
So what do you think?
