    draft blocker

    Does any one know what you would stuff into one of those long snaky draft protectors that you put on the floor by the door? Mine will actually be for our drafty windows. Thanks!

    you could probably use the pellets for stuffed animals (to make them sit up). you could also use a dense fiberfill, maybe cottong??

    I am guessing that dried beans or rice would work. It would make it a little on the heavy side but the added weight might help it stay in place. Purely a guess though since I have never made one.

    Seems like you would need both weight and filling. I would think the pellets would end up being too expensive alone, but could work with fiberfill.

    Depending on how big they are, maybe stuff a knee sock with fish tank gravel or something in the decor section in the dollar store (marbles, pebbles, etc) and then wrap the sock in quilt batting to make a roll. Seems like that would help keep the shape as well as weight it. And if it every got wet it wouldn't get yucky like rice or beans might get.
