Some people truly never grow up, and it's items like the Knitted LEGO Doorstop that bring a youthful air to grown-up interiors.

Conceived by Instructables user lizzyastro, this toy brick door prop takes a playful piece of childhood and magnifies it to the scale of the real world. The clever object gets its shape and weight from the combination of a regular masonry block and a pattern of eight plastic bottle caps. The lids are fastened in place to mimic the round bumps of a genuine LEGO block before the entire base is form-fitted with a coat of red crocheted yarn.

The finished product is a soft and supersized version of the original plaything, performing its task much more effectively than the archetype could have. The Knitted LEGO Doorstop opens the doorway to crafty and mixed media DIY design.
