    Roll out a double layer of toilet paper large enough to fit on a hoop making sure the tp is folded under to lay on the hoop, extend the roll of paper far enough to allow hoop to go on sewing machine (handle very carefully, giving plenty of room for the hoop to move). I layered heavy/med weight stabilizer, toilet paper (2 layers) then wash away stabilizer on top (clear, see through type). Center your design and sew (make sure design will fit within edges of toilet paper. When finished, carefully remove from hoop, trim stabilizers to edges of tp. Roll back onto roll. Tear washaway from around edges of design (do this very, very carefully, holding down the edges of the design as you tear to keep from tearing the tp. Wrap in Saran Wrap and decorate package as you desire. Have fun - they are unique conversation pieces!! I am attaching pics of more options I made.

    As a joke, unique conversation piece, as a challenge. My question is always - Why not? ;0)

    I have had some great times giving them as mementoes, gag gifts, etc., depending on the occasion.

    I also say, Why not ? Most people decorate their bathrooms. Why not have fancy schmansy toilet paper to decorate the shelves ? I think they are cute and certainly conversation pieces. Go for it !!!!!

    My uncle "pumps" toilets for a living and their bathroom is done in a outhouse theme I've just got this years gift idea. They have the heat stabilizer that you iron and brush away might work well on the TP Keep the Tp

    I love your embroidered TP, I've done some, may I ask where you got your Texas designs? I'm an almost native Texan, only been here about 48 of my years, live with 3 native Texans. Also love your little pouches, would love info on both.
