Step by step sewing tutorial for turning an old pair of jeans into a DIY denim door draft blocker to keep out the cold.

I decided we needed something a little heavier duty than my oven draft solution for the front door. I’m pleased with the end result.
How to Make a Denim Door Draft Blocker
Stitch the legs of one pair of old jeans together and stuffed loosely with other cast-off clothing. You can use stuffing, too, of course, but old clothes or rags are a more frugal solution. Fabric is also a little heavier than stuffing, so the door draft blocker stays in place better, too.
I used my sewing machine to stitch the ends shut, but you could do this by hand. It just takes a little longer…
And that’s all you have to do!
It keeps the cold air out, stays in place, and doesn’t show dirt.

@ Mama King – I’m pretty surprised my kids haven’t tried that, actually – maybe because it’s heavy?
I am afraid that jean leg looks a little too enticing…my 2 year old would be dragging it around the house :-)
