This unusual project, utilizing our Monogram Sets, is an unusual gift idea - embroidered soap.
This project uses Art Deco Set 3.
This project utilizes Romeo, which is an ultra heavy duty water-soluable backing.
We have used the letter "B" (large size) from our Art Deco Monogram Set 3 to make the example pictured here, but any letter that is smaller than the bar of soap is suitable.
Step-by-step instructions have been prepared, and are available to be printed. We have researched suppliers for the materials needed, and include website links for materials sources.
Preview the instructions.

This is quite easy to find, and comes in a variety of sizes and colors.
Try to find a type of soap that is not imprinted with the manufacturer's logo, which may interfere with the placement of the embroidery.
Our example was done on a bar of "Morning Song" moisturizing soap. We chose it not only for it's rectangular shape and for its color, but also because it came in an attractive bag with a pearl ribbon tie, which makes a nice presentation as a gift.
This soap is sold in the US by Bed & Body Works.
