A lotta Lotta

I just recently bough these wonderful books by Lotta Jansdotter
and they're so full of inspiration!
Starting from the left there's
"Simple Sewing", "Travel Style" and "Handmade project"
Inspired by one of the projects in the "Simple Sewing" book
I made this cute and very simple draft snake filled with dry lentils
to keep the chilly winter drafts away.
I used an old pair of jeans and some more
Etsuko Furuya "Echino" fabrics.
And this pretty sun hat that I took with me to Acapulco.
I used a linen/cotton canvas
and lined it with some beautiful
Nani Iro fabric.

You can purchase Lotta's Books at

...and see some pretty handmade goods inspired by Lotta

Um, okay, I have one of those books (and I love it) but now I may need two more!

Love the snake - how long will it stay a draft snake at your house? It would become a "real" snake in about 20 minutes in our house :)

The temperature inside the little cabin changed considerably with the addition of the draft really works!

Heehee...I think my boys are too old to play with a fabric snake :( boohoohoo.... I wish they didn't grow up so fast!

I love your snake. I've been thinking of making one as there is a huge draft coming under our living room door! Glad to hear it works!
