Sleepy Cat & Proud Fox Doorstops

Handmade Plush Doorstop

Making the most of the last few days of my Christmas holiday I made a selection of doorstops. I made them in two designs, a sleepy cat and a rather proud looking fox. I screen printed the images in blue ink onto three different fabrics – a white, pale yellow and stripy Laura Ashley fabric. The doorstops were then backed with alternative fabrics in contrasting colours, and stuffed with toy stuffing, except the bases which were stuffed with gravel to give them sufficient weight to stand and serve as doorstops. They’re available in my Etsy store.
