Would it be possible to borrow your dog draught excluder pattern, if you still have it? smile

Don't bother. I have a sausage dog draught excluder. It doesn't work.



That may be because the DDs like to take it away and play with it, then leave it lying in random spots where there is no draught to exclude.

> Ask friend with dog to get dog to lie in front of draughty door.

believe me, a sausage dog will not willingly lie in a draught.
Mine lies above where the hot water pipes run grin

I'm making my pattern in a minute. I'm overly excited- my first project since DS was born 4 months ago.
I may even post a pic.
crushagrape thank you for inspiring me grin

I made a snake thing last year, dd called it Norris, and the dog lay on top of it, didn't seem to mind the draughty gap.

I got an old blanket from a charity shop, cut it to the right length along the shortest edge, rolled it up and sewed it. No need to stuff and its wool so keeps the draught out. You could stick ears and eyes etc on it.

Even easier: Ask friend with dog to get dog to lie in front of draughty door.

Ask friend with dog to get dog to lie on fabric. Draw round it with felt pen. Cut out and sew up. Stuff.

I just made a long tube then stuffed it with old clean material. Then added ears and a tail made from old, clean socks, and button eyes and nose. Very twee. But works (and was fun and easy).

I'd like to make a doggy draft excluder for a very cold house, and there are loads of patterns/methods out there for snake ones, but not for sausage dog ones. I found one I really like from Oxfam, which I'll buy if I can't make one, but was wondering if anyone knew of a pattern anywhere?
