Here’s an artistic way to keep your home cozy this winter. These door and window stoppers or “snakes” as they are sometimes called are easy projects that pack a lot of design punch. Plus, with today’s high heating prices, they make a practical item for your own home or as a gift. Kit includes a Floral Chintz like pattern 10 or 13 mesh needlepoint canvas and all the wool tapestry threads needed to complete. To finish you could sew this canvas together to form a long cylinder and fill tightly, but why bother! Look in your local department or variety store for an inexpensive “snake”. Since you’ll be covering it with a beautiful needlepoint design, you don’t need to worry about whether you like the fabric. Better still, if you have an old one hanging around the house, all the better. Our instructions assume a standard 36” long snake approximately 8” in diameter (finish size). Let us know if you need us to size the pattern for you based on the snake you use.
