simple doorstop [not another sheep!?]

I had a bit of left-over burlap from my recentĀ lampshade makeover. I thought I would use it to re-cover a brick doorstop.

Not much to this project, simply add a little cotton batting and wrap the brick with burlap…as if wrapping a gift. I used a dab of hot glue to hold the seams in-place and then, with needle-and-thread, stitched them down to tidy them up.

I scanned a sheep pic into my computer and transferred the image onto muslin. I top-stitched around the sheep with black thread to highlight the image and then simply whip-stitched it to the brick.

And there you have it…never enough sheep… I guess!
