    this is what we did in our embroidery club yesterday. wrapped some netting around it and tied with matching color ribbon. i could make it with a deer head on it for men. think i'll make up a few to sell, how much ya think i should ask for one?

    This fall, one of the elementary school classrooms did his with orange fabric and a little bit of a silk flower and ribbon. They looked like fancy pumpkins. They made enough for every resident in the nursing home (about 85). The residents all loved them. :mrgreen:

    that's funny, that's exactly what i was thinking - $5. it takes 3 pieces of stabilizer to do it. you have to hoop a cut away, slide a tear away under the hoop and a water soluble on top of the toilet tissue, it just tears off really easy - of course you wouldn't wet it. the toilet tissue is cheap at the dollar store, but the rest of it adds up. i'll probably just do some for gifts.

    I made several of them for the Christmas Craft Fair. Sold them for $10.00 each with no problem.

    Please explain. Is it sewn onto the TP using stabilizer or onto a piece of netting around it?

    How is it that we get these ads at the end. Is everyone getting them? The one about belly fat annoyed me. I was not able to get to the end of it for the answer. Anyone else have a comment or an answer?

    Not getting any ads on this end.. perhaps you have no pop up blocker? no clue why a belly fat ad would pop up however, check with admin .. he/she is a wiz. onto the toilet paper embroidery? these are just tied covers? do they lift off, you unwrap them to get it out and refill or its a permanent decoration? lost here..

    it's a permanent decoration, you don't use this roll, just sit it out to look pretty. the embroidery is actually on the toilet paper, then the netting is gathered up around it and tied with a ribbon.
