Toilet roll cosies! Like granny used to make, kind of.

I think my love for toilet roll cosies comes from this:

My nanna used to live seven doors from our house on a busy dual carriageway in Leeds, UK. She had a very sweet looking doll toilet roll cosy, concealing a toilet roll under the frilly skirt. My brother and I used to dare each other to wear it like a hat and nonchalantly walk up the street, past the bus stop and home, which we both did before getting caught! And 25 years later, I’m making my own version. Obviously i don’t wear them anymore…because my head is too big now.
