    Would you, pretty please, post the instructions for the origami pockets. Those are great! Thanks in advance.
    I would be glad to if I had created them myself, but believe they are copyrighted by the lady that sells the pattern on her blog. You may find them at the following url: http://www.romanianquiltstudio.com/e...s-patterns.htm

    Thanks for the link to the pattern. Don't mind buying the pattern at all. I think quilt and other pattern designers deserve to be paid fairly by the people who use them.

    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 !!!!!

    I have some elder friends who are very much die-hard Auburn fans. I am, too, but they are really gung ho. They had some funny things in their rec room like a ceramic, burgundy colored elephant (Alabama's mascot) missing it's butt. The saying printed on the side was, "That's the last time I tell an Auburn tiger to bite my [email protected]#!" So as a youth group member I thought it would be funny to get them something for their bathroom. I got the rest of the group to go along with me and we purchased a toilet seat that had the AU symbol on the top of the lid, but when you opened it, it said on the bottom of the lid "Go Tigers!" We thought it was pretty funny. They did, too, but they put it at their cabin, not their main home. Oh well! But I bet they would love to wipe their butts with Bama toilet paper. Ha! Ha! Sorry for being so crude. Maybe I should order some for them?

    emblibrary.com has instructions for embroidering on toilet paper. I think it would be a great "gag" gift & certainly a conversation piece.

    Very Cute! But I think somebody has entirely too much time on their hands. My luck if I had a roll of that in the bathroom, someone would try to use it. :roll:

    Love the toilet paper, and the little pockets are awesome.
    I think Geta is a member on the board. Does beautiful trapunto.

    I have done some cool embroidery on soap...well not on the soap really, embroider on water soluble stabilizer and net, rinse off WSS, wet top of soap and smooth the netting on...looks awesome.

    I really love the variety of your TP designs. What a great gag gift...I have to try this! Thanks for sharing!

    I vote for the embroidered tp-such fun! I also like the origami pockets; could I have the link to the directions too?

    I've done some of the TP as gag gifts....for my Dad's wife who had been sick...running at both ends if you know what I mean, so I took her a roll that said "S*&T happens"...she loved it!

    I got the pattern from this website: www.emblibrary.com
    They have great designs and great prices - lots of sales.

    Exactly where I got the idea. I have had so-o-o much fun with these as fun gifts. Sometimes the looks on recipient's face is priceless. It just gives me the giggles!
