Here is a picture of my grandma's toilet roll doll that she gave me many many years ago. I have made one, but didn't jot down the pattern. Does anyone have any patterns for them?
I remember one of those in my grandmas bathroom too... I think hers was purple...If my memory serves me right I think both my grandmothers were into purple..
Yes, I found some but they are made out of Gaysheen a viscose straw yarn made in Switzerland (sort of a cross between the ribbon and the raffia). I'm sure you could still use yarn. Send me a private message (PM) with your email address if you would like me to scan them and send them to you. The book is dated 1967. I don't think they are in existence anymore.
these are simply too cute!
i think we may have a return of toilet paper covers!! especially with that one commercial that you can get a cover for a spare, can't remember which product name it is though, oh well.....
OMG - I remember my aunt making these for all of us over 50 years ago. Wish I had the pattern too.
hi, cute! nice idea for the bathroom.
Boy, that brings back memories. Taking a step back in time.
Thank you so much to a fellow KP member for sending me the patterns for toilet paper dolls that she had. I have made 5 of them for gifts, one for me of course in purple. No one sells the dolls though....and I had to purchase them from Etsy, where someone had some old, but new dolls to be had...
That turned out nice.
I made one in green a long time ago.
I had to copy the pattern that my landlady had.
She wanted a new dress on her doll.
The yellow one:
No pattern for this one.
A guy at work wanted a toilet tissue doll.
Had to be blond with a hat an had to be yellow.
He gave me the doll and I just crocheted the
dress onto her. No pattern and I didn't write
down what I did.
The ruffled dress is done on the unused
front loops when I crocheted.
I was making one on a trip we were on and my youngest at age 2 wanted it for a hat, so I put a frill on the bottom and she wore it for a hat. It was Aunt Lydia's rug yarn. 1973 summer.
My lovely late Nanna used to make those, thanks for the happy memory. I can just see hers now, sat on top of the loo :)
She is gorgeous ginamarie. Would be just too bad if Barbie got recycled. :lol:
Everyone's grandma had a tissue topper in the bathroom. I remember poodles more so than dolls. Bare rolls were not acceptable back then.
