door cozies

In the last month, 3 of the lovely ladies in my life have moved into new places, new first apartments, new states, new adventures. And even though I won't be able to pay a visit to their darling new digs anytime soon, I wanted to send them a little housewarming love. So this weekend I crafted some door cozies--because cute old apartments can be a bit drafty in wintertime (esp. if you live in Washington, Colorado, or Wisconsin like these girlies!!). They were so simple and easy to make. I just had to sew a few straight lines to make tubes out of these groovy Amy Butler fabrics. {My dear friend Fairlight actually sent me these fabric scraps last summer...I knew I'd eventually find the perfect purpose for them!} I filled the tubes with about 3 lbs of rice (!!!), sealed them with another quick seam, and voila! You can see all 3 piled by the door in my craft room in the photo above.
I also made a few little housewarming cards with some my September Scarlet Lime kit goodies. They're officially all tucked into packages, shipped, and on their way. So fun!

I also adore your lovely white doors and floorboards mmm

We had door cozies when I was growing up in an old drafty house. My grandma sewed them up and gave everyone a new one each Christmas!
