    Description says it can be used as a pillow (okay, I'm with it so far) or a "draft dodger". What in the heck is a draft dodger? I mean, besides the people who went to Canada during Vietnam....?? Is my fabric going to move to Canada after I buy it? :shock: :shock:

    You put it on the floor in front of an outside door -- helps to keep the warm air in and the "drafts" out..... :D :D

    I've also seen them used on window sills but I don't know how effective they would be there.

    A draft dodger is a stuffed fabric tube you put on the floor in front of your door or in your window sill. It keeps a draft of cold air from coming into the room and cooling it down. So, you could make this and stuff it with polyfil and put it down to keep your room warmer.

    Oh, that makes sense! Not as amusing as my explanation though ;)

    What if my window panes suck to begin with and let in the cold all around? :D

    After I read the title of the thread I was fixing to load my shotgun and find the sorry so an so!!

    But I have seen the ones that they sell on TV that you slip the foam insert into to keep the "Draft" from getting you.

    Now if you have any trouble with the fabric trying to run off you just call me and I will take care of it for you!!!

    I made a draft dodger when I lived in indiana.Cause I had a bad breath coming in from the bottom of the door.It worked real good an I don't need it here yet but if I go to getting a draft here I have some foam stuff that I can put around the door first.
