I designed a doorstop pattern - I wanted a more modern contemporary look. For the study, I used Authentic Fabrics by Sweetwater. My husband is an engineer and loves numbers and mechanical gadgets. I found a great Steampunk Clock over at The Graphic Fairy and applied it to the front panel using a photo transfer sheet. It looks great with the black and woodgrain study furniture.
For our home theatre, I used fabrics from the Metro Living Collection by Robert Kaufman, so the doorstop matched the pillows I made last year. I didn't add an image to this one as the fabric is so bright.
Next I plan to make one with an Eiffel Tower on it for our family room. Just waiting on some recently ordered fabric to arrive.
The Contempo Doorstop Pattern is now available on our Etsy Store. It is an 11 page photo tutorial with full sized pattern pieces. It is suitable for a confident beginner or intermediate sewer, and can be easily constructed in an afternoon. They would make great gifts.
