I live in an old house, so I have very drafty doors.  I made one of those things that sit on the floor in front of the door to keep the draft out.  However, I modified the design.  Normally, those thing have to be pushed back in place everytime you open and close the door.   That is impossible to do if you actually want to leave the house.  So I slapped on a couple of grommets and some screw-in hooks near the bottom of the door.  Now I will never have to put it in front of the door again.  It will stay in place, even when I go to work.

WOW.  Thanks for the overwhelming responses.  I'm so happy I inspired the Craftster community.

I made you a little tutorial. I hope it helps.

You totally rule!

I was literally sitting in front of my doorway the other day trying to figure out how I can fix the drafty gap underneath...and now I have a project for this weekend!

What did you stuff it with?

Thanks everyone.  I'm so happy you like it.


Panda Butt ... I used quilt batting to stuff it.

Petunia ...I made a tutorial.  It's really not that difficult.  I made it in about an hour.

BRILLIANT!

It's one of those things that I looked at, and it was like I'd been pushing on a door that I couldn't get open until someone pointed out the 'pull' sign.  And here I was starting to wonder why I bought that grommet kit... tiph_thompson is right - you should be selling these things or something.
