Draught stopper finished

Tessellated draught stopper

Tessellated draught stopper

After a lot of work and sore hands – I never realised how much stress English Paper Piecing places on your hands – the tessellated draught stopper is finished. This one is for the front door and so is bigger and fatter than the one I am planning for the door that leads to the garage.

I stuffed it full of off-cuts of batting – a variety of wool and silk, 100% polyester, cotton and polyester ,and bamboo. I always knew that I would find a use for them.

If I decide to make another tessellated one for the door to the garage, which is slightly narrower and inset rather than flush with its surrounds, I think I would only use 3 pieces around instead of 4 and I would make it 3 or 4 pieces shorter.

Anyway here is the finished product:
