Snake at the Door
Corliss Clayton, “Father’s Day Gifts,” Friend, June 1991, 39
To make an energy-saving snake to put at the base of doors to keep drafts out, you will need: a clean long sock or leg from a pair of hose or tights, rags or fiber fill, needle, thread, two buttons, different colors of felt, and glue.
1. Stuff the sock tightly with the rags or fiber fill. Sew the end of the sock closed.
2. Sew the buttons onto the toe end for the eyes. Cut out the other decorations, such as the tongue, nose, eyebrows, from the felt to decorate your snake. Either sew on the decorations or attach them with glue.
