New toilet roll cover design

Well today was one of those days when inspiration came again and slapped me around the chops. So far I have a poodle, a rainbow, a pig and a snowman toilet roll cover in my collection. But today I decided that what was needed was a dog! I little chocolate coloured doggy. Here is a quick sneak preview of the face! Oh and I also finished another new feign today – a pretty pink fairy toadstool cover.

More on the new pair tomorrow!

Poodle Toilet Roll Covers are Back!

Oh yes, a true throw back to the 50s and 60s toilets of our youth. No toilet was complete without one of these toilet accessories. Why have a plain old toilet roll on display when it was be disguised with this cheeky chap. He is hand crochet in worsted weight yarn from a pattern based on those originally make in the 1950s and 1960s era. He is very strong and done with a close stitch (like amigurumi) to make a nice frim body, no nasty toilet paper showing through!

I love crochet and I love retro so this was the obvious choice to design and make. We have several in our house and they always bring a smile to your face when you visit the little room.
