I Crocheted a Couple of Tam's Granny TP Covers

Sorry for the blurry picture (again.. sigh..)  I had been stalking Tam's blog to see if she had posted the pattern to her Granny Toilet Tissue Covers. :P  She said she might do a "Freebie Friday" with it.  :)  I was so happy she did! They are supposed to be for a "toilet paper kleenex roll"??  Instead of kleenex (does your family use toilet paper, too?) the toilet paper roll is undone and cut out then the toilet paper pulled up from the middle of the roll. Well I haven't done that part of it, yet. I might just use them as TP covers.  The one on the left I know I am sending to one of my people on Pine Ridge.  Can't really afford anything right now. So it's better than nothing. ;)   

I am working on a bunch of toys right now. I have no idea why. Probably cuz they're fun. But, I ran out of stuffing. Soooo.... They are all going to be on hold. I started a bunny from an older crochet book I have, on Friday night. Then did the two TP covers today. I also printed out Stormy's Super Easy Teddy Bear pattern. I want to make one right now. Then, started a turtle.    I got the whole head done on the turtle and the neck. But I think I am at a point where I'm going to stop, since I can't stuff it anyway.  Maybe I'll work on some of my other projects I already have going, so I can actually finish something...

We do sometimes use TP instead of tissue...its more economical ;)
I'm also interested in the Easy Teddy Bear, but the site won't show up for me...
Btw, have you ever used stuffing from an old pillow? I do, as long as its clean and odorless ;)

I fixed the link to got to Crochetville instead. Maybe that will work better for you, Mimi. :) I was trying to think of any old pillows we might have... I do have an old crocheted bunny that has a big hole in it I might be able to take apart and use the stuffing. :P Thanks for that idea, Mimi.
