Hm, actually, it is a cover for my boring coin bank can. Inspired by nettie's video on How to crochet a pen holder.
So, I started with dark brown, with the intention of making something that won't get dirty so easily, as compared to using a lighter colour. Then at first I thought of combining it with light brown, and I asked my bf, what colour goes with dark brown. And he said, pink. Cos chocolate goes with strawberry. Why didn't I think of that I wonder? It is perfect! Makes me think of ice cream. Actually I thought of making a neapolitan, but vanilla is a light colour, so I scrapped the idea. I am quite pleased with how it turns out!

Oh yeah, drool all you want.... Yummy....
Note: I realize that the leaves are not the same. They're experimental, made without pattern.
Without the leaves:

I added the rubber tape sometime later. Makes it easier to lift up. It holds up pretty well actually. As long as the can is not full with coins to the brim of course.
Anyway, I found that the slit for the coin turns out to be too narrow to fit our currency's biggest coin, so if I'm gonna make another one of these, I'll modify the pattern to make the slit wider.
Or, it can be a tissue roll holder too! Yey for multi-purposeness!
(Actually, I have to make a bigger one for a tissue roll holder. A regular sized tissue roll can't fit into one of these cans. This picture is just for show.)
So what do you think? Each time I look at it I'll think of Ice Cream. I'll bet you do too.
Hope you like it! ;p
