Doing the doorstop yourself is quicker and easier – by using an old, already useless stuffed animal. These types of toys are usually filled with cotton wool, which unfortunately is too light – to fulfill its task, the doorstop should be slightly heavier. To do this, open the plush toy at the bottom, remove some of the cotton wool and place small pebbles or ceramic baking beans in their place. Finally, close the stuffed animal and you’re done!

From useless scraps can also make a compact doorstop in cube shape, which you can decorate arbitrarily. You will need: 6 square, equally sized pieces of cloth with a length of 15cm, a rectangular piece that is 17-18cm long and about 7.5cm wide, a bag of rice or lentils that will give the doorstop the necessary weight, as well as buttons, Lace and some patterned fabric for decoration (optional). First, you should make a handle out of the rectangular piece of fabric. To do this, fold it up and sew it lengthwise – decorate as desired with some lace or patterned fabric (the squares for the cube sides can also be decorated as desired). Now sew the four sides of the cube together with the outside of the fabric pointing inwards, and also sew the finished handle to the fifth square. To make the job easier, they fix the elements with pins – so you will not slip when sewing. Finally, use the handle to sew the square upside down and repeat the same with the floor, but firstly fill the doorstop with some cotton wool and add the weight. Already finished!

A cute doorstop owl can be easily made with the sewing machine itself. To do this you first have to cut paper or cardboard stencils for the individual elements – with the help of which you can transfer the desired shapes to the fabric (as the stencil should look like, see the photos above). Without a template, the elements of the owl can be difficult to match. When you have finished with the templates, cut out the fabric accordingly. Then make eyes and beak for the owl and glue or sew them to the fabric. Stick the back, front and bottom of the figure together with pins – the inside of the fabric should face outwards again. Sew the pieces together leaving only a small opening in the area of ​​the bottom for filling. If desired, you can also add wings to make your owl look like a real one.
