It is so close to the holidays and some of
us are stressed. Getting last minute ideas that are quick and easy is the key
to help you finished gifts or decorations. With toilet paper already around
your house, this one is fast and fun.
Step 1: Select your design for the toilet
paper and load into your machine. It is important to
use a lightweight design. (even the three-ply or quilted paper is delicate) Thread machine with 1st color of
design. Change colors as needed throughout the design.
When I embroider on toilet paper I hoop medium weight stabilizer in my
4x4 hoop. You can get the Medium Tear Away (hobby Size) here at AnntheGran.
Step 3: Place a piece of the stabilizer in
between the 2nd and 3rd sheet of toilet paper fold the
toilet paper. Spray the 3rd sheet and center in the hoop on the
stabilizer letting the roll unravel a bit so as not to be too tight when
embroidering. I use the stabilizer between the sheets
to give it more stability when embroidering.
Step 4: Place hoop in Machine with toilet
paper hanging off the end of the machine.
Step 5: Make sure design fits in the toilet
paper square and start machine to do the design. Trace or Frame, as your
machine does it, to be sure the design fits well.
Step 6: When the design is finished trim
the stabilizer to fit the toilet paper.
You can use scissors or your cutter.
Step 7: Fold the toilet paper back over
itself. Place a piece of double sided
tape or scotch tape folded back on it’s self. This will hold it to the rest of
the roll. Place your project in a plastic bag and tie with a ribbon.
Here is the finished Santa and a bunny one
I did for Easter and a roll of paper towel I did for Christmas last year.
These are enjoyable and very fast to do and
you can use any light weight design to use for any occasion. Make them for your
favorite team. Fund raisers are always needing unusual items for people buy. I sell them for $5.00.
