Granny Tissue Covers...............

Okay... so here's the deal.................. The boys sit in the living room and play on their laptops... or do homework... or just hang out... they will toss a box of tissues around as one of them need it. Michael will need a tissue... they are sitting next to Patrick... so he tosses the box to him...etc. Well.. recently ... they started just using a roll of toilet paper instead. Its easier to toss and catch.... :) As I sit and watch this ..... not really bothered by the tossing of the tissue... because they are just boys being silly..... I'm thinking... "hmmm.... would be nice to have that roll contained so it didnt unravel as it flew threw the air."
So............................... I made it a cover. :)
Its like a draw-string bag in design... made with the "granny square" style pattern. I pulled the cardboard center out of the toilet paper roll... and tah dah......................
The boys got a good giggle out of it when they got home from school today... but actually ended up liking it as it got tossed about several times tonight.

Here is a picture of my Kleenex box cover that sits in the kitchen..... and its new matching "portable" toilet paper cover.
I'm thinking of writing up the patterns to these and posting them on one of my "Freebie Fridays" Whatcha think? Anyone interested in having the pattern?


hugs...... love..... & blessings

Me!!! Me Me Me!!!!

Cool idea!! I think toilet tissue is much softer than tissue box tissues, but don't look very good sitting in the middle of the living room!!
