Introduction: Make a Draft Excluder From Scraps and Gathered Sand

How to make a draft excluder from scraps of fabric and sand gathered in the wild. Quick to make, this is a very simple sewing project. The patchwork draft excluder (or draught excluder) is portable and very functional. For those who choose to use gathered sand for the filling, the video shows how to clean, sanitize and dry it.

The tools needed for this project are:

- sewing machine

- fabric cutting wheel (scissors could be used instead)

- fabric scissors

- pins and a needle

- measuring tape

- straight edge (any sufficiently stiff ruler will do)


This is an awesome project and a great way to use up scraps! Thanks for posting it!
