So I really have no desire to win the challenge (I couldn't care less if I even make it into the poll), but since a post here inspired my idea I wanted to post what I came up with.  It's bad, no straight lines and only took an hour, but since I love my idea I'm going to make a new one eventually.

I saw phaedra 2's A Tee Pee (toilet paper) Cozy post, and misunderstood and thought it was going to be a TeePee (for TP, get it?).  Since hers had nothing to do with Native Americans, I had to run with the idea. 

And thus, the TP's TeePee: 

Next to the tp for size:

and supplies:

The sticks are bamboo skewers, and I also used markers and hordes of tape and glue.  The yarn is helping keep the skewers from sliding around inside. 

Thanks for looking, I hope it makes someone else smile. Smiley

ETA: I apologize for the poor photo quality and the squishiness of the supply pic, don't know what happened with that one!

I would totally put this in my bathroom . . . my husband is into Indian stuff and he's used to me poking fun!  Wink

No more blog + no more facebook = more time for crafting!

I'm also JenGoPop at Ravelry.

I considered  making an Indian tp also,  but liked the irony of using a tes pot as the cosy since most people
think of a tea cosy.

Too funny straighlight!!  Because the first thing I thought before seeing the picture on the entry you are talking about was: TEEPEE TP!  LOL

It's a TEEPEE for your TP!!!  I love it.  In fact, I was thinking of making one myself, and thought the little guy would like it.  Now I know I HAVE to make one.
