Unlike tissue boxes which now come in a variety of designs and colours, most toilet paper rolls remain plain and white. And of course, they are uncovered. A simple toilet paper roll cozy would do great wonders even for the cheapest kind of toilet paper, don't you think?
I used scraps of fabric for this project. It would have been a lot easier if I had just used a single piece of fabric instead of doing patchwork, but the end result is really pretty good, isn't it?
The top closes with a drawstring and the toilet paper is pulled through the hole.
The toilet paper is pulled from the center of the roll rather than from the outermost layer. In order to do this, I had to remove the cardboard cylinder in the middle.
As always, the trickiest part was attaching the circle base. The key here is using accurate measurements. It's not really as hard as it seems.
It was nice being able to do some sewing today for a change. This toilet paper roll cozy is certainly something I would proudly take with me anywhere. Cute and functional. What do you think?
