A Room of One's Own

I really had kind of forgotten about A Month of Softies but as I was perusing crafting blogs, I was reminded how fun it was to participate. So my submission has to do with the one room in my house that I can actually have to myself from time to time

I used this Japanese book for the idea

The one in the book is actually a whole bathroom made of felt, so the toilet sits against the wall. The one I made won't stand upright unless it's leaning against something. And I don't like how the seat and lid won't lie flat. I put cardboard in both of them, but I think maybe I should have put a piece of cardboard under the top of the toilet bowl as well. Still, Miranda is delighted with it--she'd wanted me to make one ever since she saw the picture and Ivy wants me to make her one as well.

Now I just have to figure out how to use Flickr so I can actually submit it

Holy Shit Batman, that's perfect! (ok, trying to be punny here)
Very cool, are you going to make the rest of the bathroom?

Wow, what an adorable little loo! (A sentence I never thought I'd write...) I'm envious of the collection of Japanese craft books behind the loo too.
