    I have embroidered on TP and gave it as a fun gift to my family and friends at Christmas. I embroidered poinsettias on it.

    Do you embroider just the top sheet for decoration, or do you unroll it and embroider throughout the roll? Or do you embroider once but all the way through the roll?

    You fold the first 3 sheets together and embroider on them....just one design on the beginning of the roll. You have to unroll a bit of the rest from the roll so it doesn't rip when the hoop moves on the machine.

    It sounds interesting but in a different way. I wonder if you could use this method to make embroidery designs for applique? Do a dense design on 3 layers of the tissue and then soak it to remove it from the paper.
