Practical tips and ideas on how to sew doorstops

A doorstop is something that every home needs, but not every one owns. Of course, a doorstop can be considered a practical object that keeps the door open. However, sewing doorstops is almost an art because you can combine different materials and shapes. Our team has some nice DIY suggestions on how to make your ideal doorstop yourself.

Stitching doorstops - a real art

Doorstop should be heavy but not too big. While this item keeps the door open, it must not take up much space. Since we need a lot of space to move especially at the narrow entrance, these conditions are very important. A doorstop can have a cute look, but inside it has to weigh heavily. Rice, sand or stone are the appropriate materials for the interior of the little elephant.

We like to show you how to make such a doorstop yourself.

Everything you need:

  1. Canvas for embroidery and pattern in a template
  2. A trouser leg of jeans or a piece of fabric with dimensions: 80 cm long and 15 cm wide
  3. Filling of old pillow
  4. Colorful threads

Tools: embroidery needle, sewing machine, scissors and ballpoint pen.


  1. First, transfer the motifs to the canvas with a ballpoint pen to embroider. So you do not need to count the stitches. Follow the pattern until you reach the desired shape.
  2. Second, cut the trouser leg into the appropriate length. Sew the canvas to one side of the fabric. You can do this with the sewing machine or by hand. Release one of the shorter sides of the fabric.
  3. Finally, insert the filling in the hole and sew the sides together.
  4. It's so easy to have a great doorstop!

Burlap is an easy-to-process fabric, so you can choose it for your sewing project. Fill the doorstops with heavy materials such as sand. The best shape is from a pillow by sewing a handle to make it easier to move the doorstop. Make the handle either in ribbon or rope. This fabric is considered charming and gives an exclusive vintage look to your room. For example, if you find these pillows too boring, you can stamp something on them. In the picture we see a message to the door - Stop!

That's how it looks!
