Our bathroom is really poorly designed so there is no way to keep the door to it open, in fact it actually just opens onto the laundry door which was so badly thought through that it can’t physically close all the way either >_< Seeing as the door won’t stay open by itself I decided to make a door stop 😀
What you need:
Ugh, felt scraps are so messy, I haaaate them >_<
First let’s cut a base. This is the shape you should cut out:
Now cut the sides! Below you can see the shapes you need, to make the back ones it’s basically a square with a corner cut off. For the front it’s a square with the top cut into a semi circle. Make sure you leave an extra centimeter on each side for a seam allowance.
Now let’s put it together! Start with these piece:
Lay them together like this:
Stitch (or glue if you’re in a hurry hahaha!) down the left side. Open it up and it looks like this:
Repeat on the other side 😀
Now join the two flap pieces to form a back seam like this:
Now it’s time to make the front ^_^
Stitch/glue the front piece around the curve:
Turn the whole thing inside out so the seams are like this:
Stitch/glue the side until you reach the little corner.
Leaving a hole in each side stitch/glue the seam at the very top!
Now let’s make some ears! Cut a triangle of matching felt and a square of pink.
Put them together like this and secure:
Fold them up like this and secure:
Time to put the ears in 😀 This is roughly the placement you want to use…
Fold in the loose edges so the ear is sandwiched between them and stitch/glue!
Now using the hole on the other side, fill it with rice!
And close up the hole with the second ear sandwiched in!
From the back it looks like this:
Now add a cute face and you’re good to go!
Unfortunately ours suffered a slightly gory death as James was getting dressed, lost his balance and accidentally stamped on it. Brains everywhere >_<
I made another one to replace the blue one then fixed him up to live at a less action packed door XD
