This was fun! I stitched all the designs on heavy WSS and then cut very close to the design. Soaked in water and then placed on the bars of soap while still wet. Today, after they were completely dry, I sealed the design by dipping in parafin. I hope to add the TP, soaps, and other things to baskets for Christmas gifts.

Wow this is coool!

Great Work, mine never turn out *4U

by annmounce 11 Oct 2008

I love these ! After dipping them in parafin, can they be used or are they strictly decorative ? I know I'd just leave them on display in my bathroom, but if I make some, someone will ask, can I use this, so let me know. Beautiful gift idea !

I just love this idea. I have three wedding gifts to make and I think this will in all three! :) *4U

by smoke1275 24 Jun 2008

I do these alot to use up my wet away, as I hate throwing things away. I usually do the Brother card 20 small designs. we have found the embroidery out lasts the soap. I often do a flannel to match, good idea for childrens birthday parties. It's a great idea to dip them in parafin. They are really lovely well done.

by nonna57 24 Jun 2008

Very pretty & clever. Too nice to use :)

this is something else! Lovely designs to brighten up a bathroom. Don't think I would want to use the soaps *4u

by cricket17 23 Jun 2008

This is the most totally fabulous idea......thanks for sharing I am going to try this very soon. what a great way to personalize a soap using well as did you apply the parafin? and in what form did you purchase it?
does the designs stay while the soap is being used?

dkjack by dkjack 21 Jun 2008

Thank you. Yes, Christmas is what I'm working towards. Lots more to make and then some towels.

mariahail by mariahail 10 Oct 2008

Tha is a great idea, I wiil have to go to the Dollar Store and get some soap.Thanks**

by nglover1 21 Jun 2008

Very nice. Good Job. I made some several years ago for craft shows and made towels to match. They really sold well .(Brother web site has Flowers of the month in small and large designs.) I did wrap in self sealing cellophane and made small deco labels and placed on back of cello stating For Decorative Purpoaes Only. Didn't want someone to give as gift and when they got wet design would come off. A flower for you.

Thank you for the towel suggestion! Yes I do plan on wrapping the soaps but had not thought of the label for decorative purposes. I really do not think the ones I will give them to would use them but who knows about kids or guests. hee hee
