Embroidery On Paper - More Project Ideas & Tips

Some types of paper can stand heavier designs like the hand-made paper in Nancy Babb's notepad project for instance. The paper was of very good quality and perfectly supported the design that normally wouldn't be the best choice for paper embroidery. So if you strongly want to embroider a design that is really dense, it's still worth to try with quality paper and stabilizer. It may work well.

Nancy made a very special embroidered notepad with monogram frame from Sweet Roses design set and "B" initial embroidered inside that frame. The embroidery was done on hand-made paper! This paper was of really good quality so Nancy managed to hoop it the regular way, like fabric. And embroider directly on it. If you'd like to repeat the same project using less than perfect paper you may hoop cutaway backing, attach the paper on top of it using temporary adhesive spray and then embroider.

Below you'll find an instruction for making the notepad, kindly provided by Nancy. And here's a photo of completed project.


1. Hoop and stitch handmade paper just like regular fabric, using design from Sweetfashion Roses set and a monogram. You may align the designs and save them together in single file to make the process easier.

2. Cut 2 pieces of chipboard to approximately 1/4" larger than your notepad.

3. Cut 3-rd piece of chipboard the same depth of your notepad.

4. Tape the three pieces together.

5. Glue stitched paper and ribbon to chipboard.

6. Cover inside "top" with the same handmade paper and glue the notepad down on the "bottom".
