    Embroidery on Toilet Paper

    I needed to come up with an idea for 15 gifts for new coworkers. I found a tutorial on how to embroider on toilet paper and decided to give it a try, using a design that could be stitched out in 3 colors or less. I have to admit, I'm pretty impressed with the results! I stitched it out on my Bernina Bernette Deco 600.

    The tutorial is here on Embroidery Library: http://www.emblibrary.com/EL/ELProje...oductid=PR1041

    Very pretty. I have to admit, I'm not sure how I'd react if I received a gift of embroidered toilet paper.

    Well, I guess I'm hoping the recipients will like it because it's both unique and kind of funny.

    I would use it for decoration and threaten anyone's life that would use it.

    I would probably display it during the Christmas season and then take the first square off and put it in a frame and put it with all my other decorations for following years!

    How wonderfully unique! I'd never thought it would be possible.

    Okay I think my reaction was partially due to the fact that the embroidery is so pretty, I would feel that using the toilet paper would be an insult to you (the O.P.). However, if you embroidered pictures of a certain few those-who-shall-remain-nameless politicians, I would definitely use it and laugh while I did!
