Painted Embroidery - bringing your artwork to life

I had some success, but didn't pursue it because I couldn't get the fine detail that I wanted. They may have improved over the years but this time I decided to try the Tulip brand. I was at Hobby Lobby looking for something else (of course) and spotted the TULIP 28976 Fine Writers Marker, 20-Pack . **I've also used fabric paint from a bottle, but don't care for the bulky feel of most fabric paint.

I have a lot of embroidery patterns so off I went to see how the Tulip fabric markers worked.
