Then my second pocket to match. I then pinned them in place.
I stitched the pockets in place.(i'd like to say that I used dark thread so that you could see it better but I believe that "honesty is the best policy" so the truth is that when I get excited about making something I can't always take the time to change thread!) You won't be able to see your stitching so if you are impatient like me then do the happy dance right now! Now slide the tubes that you have cut to 32" into the pockets. This will take the longest to do in this quick little project. The pockets have to be tight enough to hold the tube well.
And here you go... new age draft dodger complete for your old age door! This is still my proto-type and I was thinking out loud during lunch and came to the conclusion that if you put another pocket at the bottom and across the bottom of the tubes and put some sort of flexible plastic inserted inside than the tubes might stay in place and not flop a little like mine did. I'll let you know if I try that in the near future but for now this is working!
O.k. be honest (you know it's the best policy!) did all of that make sense to you or were you saying HUH? while you read it. You see I have been wanting to do a tutorial on here for awhile now because when I go to blogs that I know have them I get all giddy when I see a new tutorial that I want to try.
Now that I've made my hubbys day by saving us a little money on the energy bill and I didn't pay 9.99 + 6.95 shipping - this project cost all of 2.00 for the tubing and the fabric was a left over piece from my stash! I can get on to my next project and finish the curtains that I am making for my son. Happy Saturday! ~ Theresa xoxo
