Okay, I have seen these before, but never attempted them. It was on my "TO DO" list SOMEDAY. Well, I was needing some inexpensive fun gifts and thought of them last night when I couldn't sleep.
Embroidering on toilet tissue is interesting. I had no trouble with it tearing at all. I was careful though. Using three thicknesses folded under and cut-away stabilizer, it was really quite easy. I would suggest not using a dense design. I liked the lightness of the snowmen.
The toilet paper brands I used were Cottonelle and Angel Soft. I prefer the Cottonelle, a little more durable, but the Angel Soft worked fine too. I am sure that I need to change my needle too, after sewing through all that paper, it's bound to be a little dull.
They are so easy and depending on what design you choose pretty darn quick! I made the flowers first and then decided I didn't want to change threads because I needed several rolls and found the SNOWMEN! I think they're cuter anyway.
So instead of cleaning today, I was in the sewing room. That dust will still be there tomorrow! Put that off as long as possible. Here's what I ended up with:
I may have gotten a little carried away! Here are some closeups:
When my husband saw these, he laughed and said, "what will you do next?" Who knows! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
