Step 2: The Inter tubes...

Measure you door or just place socks end to end to see what length of draft stopper you need.

The door I used was a bit longer than 2 feet.  It coincidentally worked out to 2 feet socks long.

You want to create a really long continuous tube of sock material.

You will want to create a pair of tubes connected lengthwise so you can slip it under the door.  The foam pipe insulation pieces will fill out the sock tubes and hug the bottom of the door. 

To extend one sock:

Cut off the end of the next sock.

Flip this sock inside out.

Insert the first sock inside and align the top edges.

Sew a seam around it to join the socks.  Be sure to stretch the seam as you go along so that the sock can expand later.

When you flip it the sock back out, you should have a finished seam to create the continuous length of socks.

Repeat as necessary.

When you have two sock tubes, flatten them out and align together.

Sew one edge to join the two sock tubes together.
It looks like Mickey get squished by the door... Poor Mickey

You are a bad, bad, person...
Like you didn't grin the first time you seen the stuffed Garfield toys with tire tracks across the middle back in the 80's.
Hmmmph, I'll have you know I did not buy that. It was a gift from someone close to me!
This is awesome. I'll have to talk my wife into making one.
Make it yourself and join the manly man sewing circle of all things oddly spectacular.
I accept the challenge! First I have to finish my current project, and then I'll post my results
and if it doesn't turn out well, no worries, it can be a chew toy for the dog.
Poor Mickey :D Brilliant build C'dad, made me laugh. Also solves the problem I have with most draft excluders, this one moves with the door, right?
You might have to nudge his feet or ears to get past the doorframe but it moves when you open and close the door. It is a channel shape which is friction fit and held in place under a door. Use socks that won't snag anything on the door sill or make it out of some shop rags or dishtowels.
I have to make this!!! I just have to finish my other ten projects first. Lol.
