One of my lovely customers suggested I make a door stop after a whale I made for her ended up (during play) next to her door stop. I really liked the idea and when I had some time to experiment (and re-discovered the perfect pattern for it) I made these. The pattern they’re made of was made by Abby Glassenberg from While she naps. The bunnies are as easy a sew as they can be and fun and relatively fast to make. They’re nice scrap busters too, if the scraps are reasonably sized.
The door stops are 16 centimetres high (although almost twice that at 30cm if you count the ears) and 14 centimetres wide. They require a 55x40cm piece of fabric for the body and ears, but they can be made in a more fabric-saving way so if you have a smaller piece. Just message me and we’ll figure something out! Optionally I can add a firmer type of interfacing on the ears so that they’ll stand up instead of droop down a bit. Make sure to mention that if you want it.
The door stops will have a leather bottom. If you prefer a vegan version I can do a full wrap scrap version too and we can add latex to the bottom to give it extra anti-slip properties. For weight I use small glass beads/granulate. This material is safe to wash, does not emit microplastics and is recyclable. I add the beads sewn up in a fabric pouch for extra security. After all, nobody wants their doorstop to start spreading random glass beads everywhere!
