I had to put on my thinking cap for this one. I wanted to be different, do something I haven't done for awhile, so don't you know, I came up with a Moose! Oh, yeah your all thinking, like we haven't seen one of them, on this blog before. LOL!!
I dug back, way back to my days of professional crafting... back when soft country animals were all the rage. I went thru all those boxes stacked under the stairs, (the door didn't stop me, but all that dust about did me in) til I found the perfect project...
Just how is this softie really going to be a door stop. If I weight his bottom, I trip over legs that are sticking out... hummm
I haven't fired up the saws in my shop for years!
But giving him a partial wooden body, might do the trick.
I designed these crazy looking shoes for him.
They tuck right under the door!
Just like a door stop.
I kept his gal pal, as the pattern was written.
She sits next to him, so nicely on a little bench!
The holidays might be over, but it's Christmas all year long here in the Moosestash
make sure you visit all my friends!

What a fantastic idea for a door stopper! His feet are perfect. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Oh, wow, Joan those shoes are perfect. He could hold any door open for sure. Great idea. Your post is so fun to look at and the details on your moose is awesome. You channeled your professional crafter country ways and excelled. Saws? wow, I am impressed.ReplyDelete
Thank you for hopping. Your post is super-duper. Mr. Moose and his gal pal are great fun.
Well of course there would be a moose at the door. Clever way to make him a door stopper. I tried working with the texture magic and did not like the effect.ReplyDelete
Those shoes a pure genius, Greetings from Oklahoma, USA crystalbluern at onlineok dot comReplyDelete
I love what you did with that moose! I'm pretty sure I have the same pattern stashed some where.ReplyDelete
How creative. Those same moose come out at my sister's home every Xmas. Love the way you designed the feet. Seriously cute door stop.ReplyDelete
They are just adorable! Love the wooden wedge legs to keep him standing. Just love them both!ReplyDelete
A moose marriage! That is what I see in your future, they look very cosy together. Even if he does have on weird (but wonderfully useful) shoes! I love them both. Beautifully done!ReplyDelete
I love them, I will have to rootle through my craft books and look for something similar to adapt, I have 1 door with a mind of its own.ReplyDelete
A wonderful moose couple, maybe there will be some moose kids too. Thanks for sharing your awesome doorstops.ReplyDelete
I do love a good moose, and you made two! Love them borh :)ReplyDelete
I knew there would be a moose and you didn't disappoint! Love it!!ReplyDelete

Those wooden shoes are a great idea! Both of the moose are adorable.ReplyDelete
Your moose are charming and the shoes are a really great idea!ReplyDelete
I remember those patterns and I know I have made quite a few in my time. I do like the way you have adapted it for a door stopper. Only you could do this!!! Definitely delightful moose!ReplyDelete

Bravo!! What an ingenious idea. Talk about thinking outside of the box!! I love it!!ReplyDelete
Your Teddy/Moose is so cute all dressed up and the doorstop shoes are ingenious. Thanks for the bag giveaway...it's lovely. svonfumetti at yahoo dot comReplyDelete
Love your moose door stop and his companion. You are being your usual creative self. Stay warm.ReplyDelete
These are just beauties! Must have been lots of work making them. Thanks for the giveaway. This pouch would have been just perfect for my hexies.ReplyDelete
I think I had that super cute moose pattern too LOL What a innovative lady you are Joan !ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, how awesome!! The wooden shoes are brilliant. Hehehe, I bought some of that Texture Magic about a year ago and still haven't used it!! Isn't it funny how we NEED something fast and then it sits on a shelf forever!!!ReplyDelete
A moose! How clever of you. I love the way you did his shoes and how sweet of you to include his girlfriend so he doesn't get bored while at work!ReplyDelete
I love your moose(s)! Now what do you call more than one moose. I wonder? I was here very late last night and was looking for a moose but your post was not up before sleep called my name just after midnight. I just knew there would be a moose for The Moosestash! I am still amazed, though, by your creativity and your workmanship. The wooden feet are just the perfect idea. Thanks for sharing .... :) PatReplyDelete
Your moose and his shoes are so cool! You turned him into the perfect doorstop...I love it! His sweetie is so cute, too. I've played around with Texture Magic, but mine never looked as cute as that bag.ReplyDelete
I love your moose doorstop, too much fun! He's such a snappy dresser along with his lady friend they make a sweet couple:)ReplyDelete
Thank you for the chance.
What a cute couple! I love how you resolved keeping the male moose upright with the wooden additions, wedging him up against the door. They remind of being at the photographer's studio with him standing along side her, seated. Well done and fun to be crafting again?ReplyDelete
Hmmmm, good idea with the legs! I think your moose couple are perfect!ReplyDelete
I love your moose. Very ingenious to add the door wedges and make him into a door stop. I could use a few of those.ReplyDelete
Oh, Joan! These are so, so cute. You always come up with the most adorable things. I really love these. Thank you so much for sharing and thank you for the giveaway.ReplyDelete

What a fabulous door stop!!! You did a great job on it too.ReplyDelete
I couldn't wait to see how you made a Moose for a stopper...I knew you would. Well you outdid yourself again. I love them! Did you name them yet?ReplyDelete
Well now aren't you clever finding the perfect way to make mr. Moose into a door stop , just sweet!ReplyDelete
I knew you could stitch up a moose no problem. Adorable! I love your title "Professional Crafter." If I had that titl;e I could justify all my stuff. :)ReplyDelete
Your moose is adorable! sew very cute!ReplyDelete
Brilliant idea to add the wood. Both moose are stunning. OK, being the moose expert, what is the plural of moose?ReplyDelete
Your Meeses are out standing!! er i Mean your mooses. ;) Love their clothes, and how very clever to give Mr. Moose new sturdy feet.ReplyDelete
Those wooden wedge shoes are so clever! Your doorstop looks wonderful! Mmm, I think I have some of those old patterns around here somewhere.ReplyDelete
I it is the cutest door stopper I ever seen! :)ReplyDelete
Such a cute door stopper and I love how the shoes work. Perfect.ReplyDelete
Oh, Ms. Moosestash! Those are the cutest little meese ever! (Plural of mouse = mice, plural of moose = meese. Just makes sense to me!) So clever with the door stop snowshoes; my favorite!ReplyDelete
