How to embroider on toilet paper

Here’s how you can embroider on toilet paper! This is a super fun goofy project and makes the best gag gifts!

What you will need:

  • Toilet paper roll (If you can, use a larger toilet paper as this will give more room for your embroidery design!)
  • Pins
  • Cut away stabilizer
  • Embroidery machine
  • Machine embroidery needle
  • Machine embroidery thread
  • 60wt or 90wt bobbin thread (depends on your machine) 

The steps:

Take the first few squares of the toilet paper off of the roll.

Hoop your cutaway stabilizer. 

Now fold over the first piece on the roll three times, making sure that the folds are underneath itself. What you are doing is making sure that the folds are on the backside. 

Pin the toilet paper to the cutaway stabilizer, this part is quite difficult, so just take your time and be careful not to rip the toilet paper. 

Before embroidering, make sure that the pattern will only embroider on the toilet paper square, to do that click the button to preview when the embroidery will be. This article will explain how.

Stitch out the design. 

Unpin the toilet paper and take it out of the hoop, cut the cutaway stabilizer to fit behind the toilet paper square without showing. 

One extra step that you can do if you'd like, is to use a little piece of tape to tape the square to the one behind it. This will just keep it looking like a new toilet paper roll (with embroidery) and will keep the embroidered square from falling down!

You’re done! I hope that this gag gift will bring many giggles to you and your friends or family!
