Diamond-back Draft Snake


It's finally getting cold here, and our house is a bit drafty. Normally not much of a sewer, I was inspired to make this draft snake. I've always loved these and wanted one, and I love how easy they are to make out of whatever you have lying around. This particular snake is made out of a worn out pair of corduroys, excerpts from an accidentally felted argyle sweater, and some of my great-grandfather's antique buttons (he was a tailor). The tongue is red binding tape that I happened to have lying around. I filled her with some pretty old pinto beans that we had lying around. This project has really inspired me to make further dents in my stack of old clothes waiting to be repurposed.
