I found a book for Gallery Glass (stained glass look with paint) that has lots of good designs for this (made a leaf a few months ago). I'm not completely sure what to do with it though.  Smiley

I don't have one of those sewing machines you can program to do embroidery...  so I don't know about doing it by machine...  Sorry!  I'm sure it could be done though.

You could try staggering your elongated diamond stitch (so the large area of the diamond hits at the join between the diamonds below it) for filler, and do the black stem stitch by hand, although you'd have to pick fairly regular objects (layers of satin stitch scallops might work too).  You can use your machine's satin stitch (basically a zig zag with a short stitch length, like for buttonholes) to draw the black "lead" areas, but I don't think it would work well for the edges (you'd have to do the outside edge by hand). The filler won't look the same, but you might be able to achieve a similar effect.

Frankly, though, I think it'd take more patience to line that sort of thing up than it would to do it by hand.  Since you're working with 6 strands of floss, it does fill quickly (especially with smaller objects. I think the leaf I did took ~10 hours, but it was about the size of a 3 by 5 card (it also helps if you don't have anything else you can do, and you do it in spurts. For example, it's a great project for longish car rides, or to do while waiting at the doctor's office). It's small, requires a needle, some floss, scissors (or nail clippers), and the piece of felt you're working on, so it would all fit in a ziplock bag. 

Hope this helps!

Wow! What a cool idea! I'm inspired to try this, despite my lack of embroidery skill. Satin stitch doesn't look too complicated... but could a novice do it? And if I went the cheap way and used felt as the backing, would it work to use a piece of fusible interfacing to keep it from stretching out? Thanks for the tutorial, and beautiful embroidery!

A novice could totally do it, just start small.

I think the heat fusing of the fusible interfacing might melt the felt.
 
BUT I'm home for christmas and there are so many more supplies here...  I saw something at Joann's that was a stiffened felt.  i forget what it was called (friendly felt, fabulous felt?), but wonder if this would do the trick...

Yeah, that stuff's really stiff, but I really didn't have much of a problem with the felt stretching out.  You could use a piece of interfacing (or stabilizer) and sew it to your felt around the area you're planning to embroider (although you could probably leave the stitches to secure the stabilizer in, since there's a pretty significant layer of floss over the entire thing).

Thanks! I'll try it someday and post again Smiley

I used this tutorial! I loved making these! Here all the three I made...(my stitches are quite messy, but I don't mind!) They're sewn onto a bag with some of my badge collection, I hope you can still see everything ok!

You can see them all up a little closer in this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=147981.0(I don't want to spam up this post with lots of pictures!...I hope this is the right thing to do!)

Thanks so much for this great tutorial, I love buttons and patches and this was just what I was looking for! Thanks again! Grin
