Lipstick Blotter Crochet Pattern

Do you remember when you were a little girl (assuming you are female), watching your mama get dressed to go out, and how after applying her lipstick, she'd reach over for a little piece of tissue and dab her lips?   That's what this pattern is.   A little crochet container to hold the little tissues

Vintage Crochet Box Pattern

The little crochet container measures 5-1/2 inches in diameter.   It is cute, ribbon decoration and little roses on the top.     

This one had me going for awhile.   At the end of the directions ... for the little tissues, it gave instructions to take a roll of toilet paper and cut it in half using using your electric knife.  Then, pull the center tube out of each of the half and put the 1/2 toilet paper roll into the container.   

That got me to thinking.  I wonder how nicely a whole roll of toilet paper would cut in half.   I mentioned it to Beau, who gave me that 'what are you thinking look'.  I was just a couple minutes from heading to the kitchen to give it a try, when I realized ... yet right ... if it works, there would be all those little TP fibers floating around in the air and I'd need to dust again.  I hate dusting and that put an end to the thought.  

But, back to the box.   It's a cute little and perhaps someone will be able to come up with an idea that doesn't involve cutting TP paper rolls in half to use it.   Just in case, I've listed it in my shop as a Free Download.  

Thanks for dropping by,
