Yellow Draft Stopper

It must be about 7 or 8 years ago now that I made this yellow draft stopper! This was before I could read patterns so I just made this up as I went along.
an old draft stopper I made years ago when I was learning to crochet
The apartment I used to live on the north side of Brisbane over 5 years ago would get a nasty draft in winter from under the back door so I made this draft stopper. Its simply granny clusters, I remember I had to really rack my brain to remember what to do back then. Its basically a long skinny bag stuffed with old t-shirts and socks. This is one of the first things I made after returning to crochet as an adult, because my mum taught me how to crochet when I was a child. When I was a kid I used to make blankets and tiny rounds to use as handbags for my dolls. I also sewed clothes, which my mum also taught me how to do (thanks again, mum!).

I just found this old draft stopper after sorting out a box that's been sitting under my kitchen sink for 5 years! Isn't it amazing what you find when you're not looking??
