You could check Annie's Attic - they have patterns for all kinds of stuff and I'm sure I've seen TP covers in their catalog.

Gosh, I looked closer at the two pictures and I bet you are right, Minnie! At first I thought the "Powder-Room Poodle's" body part was solid, not filet mesh, but now I see that probably it is just the T-paper color showing through. Popular pattern!!

I have searched for years trying to find the crochet poodle toilet paper cover. My mom use to make them back in the 1970's. Is there anyone that could provide the instructions for the poodle cover.
