A draght excluder I made for a friend, I hope she doesn't mind me posting a pic. I nearly always give my stuff away these days & I wanted to share.

I love it! Agree with Susie - a very lucky friend!

@123Sologne Some toy stuffing left over from my professional toy making days. The bags used to be kept under my youngest's cot...she's 19! :oops: :oops: :oops:

Infact the whole thing only cost me 16.5p...the cost of the eyes!

The ribbon tongue, (which is looped for hanging on the door knob/handle) was from an Easter egg...in 1989!

Hoarder? Moi? :shock: :oops:
