I recently got a dremel for the main purpose of engraving glass. Well I've been trying it out and it seems to be taking forever. I have my design taped under the glass but when I remove the pattern the engraving looks very sloppy. Any suggestion on what I could do to make it have cleaner edges. Maybe I'm just using the wrong bits? I'm using the one that are labeled engraving. Any help would be much appreciated!

My Brother- in- law is an artist and he did a lot of engraving of artwork on glass.  He used a dremmel and a diomond tip .  He used no pattern.  He just drew with the dremmel tool like you would with a pencil on paper.  He did some great work.  He often broke the glass though and had to start over.  Not easy.
