They told me one day, I would do it…

…that yes, indeed, when you got hooked onto machine embroidery, you would want to embroider on just about anything! And how true that is! I remember last summer, one of our SWAK customers, Charlene, sent in this darling picture of a s’more design stitched onto nothing other than a toilet paper roll! What a hoot! I thought, “How in the world did she do that?  How clever…the toilet paper roll resembles a marshmallow!”


When Debbie of Too Cute Embroidery offered a step-by-step tutorial on how to make this one-of-a-kind, unique project, I jumped on the chance for her to show me how! And now I’m excited to let you know that you can find this free tutorial in the SWAK 101 section of our site! She is also graciously giving this fun Christmas design to you for free as well!


I had so much fun with this, that I couldn’t help myself… I NEEDED to make a snowman out of toilet paper! What a great conversation starter, a super white-elephant gift, or even a unique way to make sure every room in your house is decorated this season! The design is yours for FREE and can be found in the free section of SWAK.
