Cheeseburger Tissue Box Cozy
The first time I crocheted a cheeseburger tissue box cozy was for the 2012 Plush You! art show which is founded and annually curated by my friend Kristen. Ever since then, people have been writing to me for the pattern, and now I’m excited to serve it up with a juicy patty, frilly lettuce, tomato slices, onion strings, cheesey goodness, and even cute little sesame seeds on the top bun. Your tissues will become a talking point, and you will be the first person you know with a cube-shaped burger to impress all the gourmet-burger fanatics! If anybody happens to shed happy tears over the savory amazingness of this cozy, you’ll already have something handy to wipe them away.
