Homey Doorstop

Do any of you guys have self closing doors. My craft room door has this problem. I guess most days I shouldn't consider it a problem, because it's nice to hide the crafting mess from everyone's view. Like on days like these:

However, when the kids are playing in the playroom and I want to keep an ear out, or if I just want to not feel so separated from everything, I'd like my door to just stay open. And sometimes my craft room is actually clean, so I don't mind everyone seeing. Like on days like these:
(This room has since been updated, but I have yet to take a picture of it when it's actually clean.)

I guess I could look at or adjust the hinges, but I'd rather take the cute and crafty route. So, I made a doorstop.


I just pieced some fabric and felt scraps together to make this little house shape- I was going to go crazy, but life was calling. I filled it half with poly pellets (it's nice having a husband who works in the plastics industry who got me free samples) and the rest was stuffed with fiberfill. It works just nice and looks cute while on the job!

Oh my gosh! I need you to make me a little felt toilet for my bathroom door (the master one that connects to our bedroom)! I'm using a flip-flop as a doorstop right now! You are so stinking crafty!
