Turkish Doorstop

I love old ethnic textiles, especially embroidered ones, the patterned borders on this interestingly shaped doorstop are taken from a rug that I bought while on holiday in Turkey. The tetrahedron shape is simply made from a single oblong and then I have added a handle on the top decorated with hand-made Dorset buttons. The kit contains everything you need to make your doorstop except some silver sand for filling, you will need about 1.8 kilos (available from your garden centre). Worked from a coloured chart on size 14 canvas using Appletons crewel wools.
