This listing is for one draft snake in the "Tomboy" color scheme which is dominated by blues and greens and has lots of cute boy-ish fabrics with cars, sneakers, and guitars.

These draft snakes are guaranteed to keep the temperature in your house more stable in summer or winter, and save you money on your energy bill, especially if you live in an older home with wood-framed windows.

They measure about 20 inches long and 2 inches wide, and come with instructions on how to easily shorten them to fit your windows better. They are filled with lentils, which overlap like shingles for maximum wind-stoppage, plus a bay leaf for luck and to keep bugs out of your house. They are not filled too full though so they can be laid atop latches, nails, or be placed around curved windows.

I created these because my windows fit poorly, and after using them I was astonished at how much nicer the climate in the house was and how much the street noise level was reduced.

They also make a fantastic gift for new parents, as babies are very susceptible to getting a chill, even on summer evenings.

Since these are made from scraps of fabric left over from all my sewing projects, the snakes you receive may not look exactly like the ones pictured. But rest assured they are all super-cute and will include all kinds of vintage, designer, and Japanese fabrics.

*The last two pictures are for style only, they are of the "odd one out" color scheme.

*These cannot be shipped outside of the USA because of the lentils, sorry!
