Honest Ed's toilet paper cozy

"Honest Ed's" by Rob Elliott of Swizzle Studio
Honest Ed’s” by Rob Elliott of Swizzle Studio who says: “Julia’s friend made this knit version of the famous Toronto retailer. It’s a cozy for those massive packages of toilet paper.”


WOW! This is one of the oddest hacks we’ve seen at knitahcker. Loving it… As Rob suggests, “Honest Ed’s is a landmark discount store located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is named for its proprietor, Ed Mirvish, who opened the store in 1948 and oversaw its operations for almost sixty years, until his death in 2007.”


It’s massive and pretty essential when you’re a young university student organizing her first apartment…
Here’s a photo of the store:
