This was my practice at making a snake toy. Its not supposed to be a draught excluder, though it turned out much like one. I lightly stuffed it so that it would bend but what i realised through making this, was that there needed to be a greater length to width ratio for it to work properly.
I am already working on the actual one, which... yes...you guessed it, is made out of felted wool. It is probably just over two meters long and exactly half the width of the first. Its great to tie around your neck and knot up like a pretzel....what more could you want?    Erm.... my daughter would probably prefer to have free access to my clothing drawers. She likes to style herself with my underwear like scarves and shawls and make a point of letting me know about it. Im finding it increasingly worrying, in a taboo sort of way. Though of course hilarious too (dont get me wrong, im no prude) but have decided that i would make this snake toy as the new thing she could wrap around her shoulders and prance about the house with. But when all is said and done, stitched and embellished, you and i know that underwear drawer is still going to be a favourite.
