Door Stop (Fabric Owl)

This lovely appliqued owl purse was one of my stocking filler gifts and it is too pretty to keep pennies and stamps in.

Instead, I have filled it with marbles and used it as a door stop.

Marbles are very useful for all sorts of craft projects so keep a bag of them in your craft room.

Filling and tapping as I worked, there are several hundred marbles in the owl.

And here he is. My little dumpy owl who now sits happily on the landing.

If you wanted to create a door stop, look for pretty purses and small bags which could be filled with sand or pebbles.

Happy hunting.
