Hi everyone,
This is something that I have not seen posted. Does anyone still use a tea cosy, it was a main stay in our home growing up, also the toilet roll cover it was like a top hat with a frilly bottom edge and usually there was added decoration on top or on the sides. It sat on the toilet tank. Misty

Hello,

In looking at the youtube videos, there were not any toilet roll covers which gave you a pattern.

Here are few other links:
