Chester, my cat, lives in my laundry. Well, in saying this, his litter tray and food bowls are in the laundry. He "lives" all over the house... and by "lives", I mean sleeps.
The laundry has another door which then leads out to the side garden and washing line. When I open this outside door, the inside door always blows closed.
Now that I’ve given you the back ground to the architecture of my laundry, I thought I’d share with you my Meow Doorstop. It will sit in front of the internal laundry door and hopefully stop the door from slamming shut… well, hopefully.
I made it using the ‘Bonjour Paris Doorstop’ pattern by Lisa Cox, from her book, A Spoonful of Sugar: Sew 20 Simple Projects to Sweeten Your Surroundings Zakka Style. The fabric I used is by Sarah Watts called “From Porto with Love” by Cotton & Steel (RJR Fabrics). These cat prints (on canvas) just spoke to me and since the door stop was for the cat room, well, it was a given.
I used the selvedge to make the top handle. Seeing is my background is Portuguese, I thought it was quite fitting.
