Pyramid doorstop

As the weather here in Australia warms up, the doors and windows are opened wide to usher in a refreshing cross-breeze. Annoyingly, that breeze can also fling doors around a little too noisily for my liking. I quickly solved that problem on the weekend by stitching up a super-easy pyramid doorstop. Projects don’t get any easier than this, and another great way of using up the fabric stash.

You don’t have to look very far to find instructions for this project online, but I crafted mine to similar measurements of an existing doorstop made by a friend. Instead of funneling sand in from the side as most instructions suggest, I left one edge of the bottom open and inserted the sand in a very lightweight plastic bag, then hand stitched it closed. That way, if it ever needs to be washed it can easily be opened and the sand bag removed.
