A machine embroidery technique used for creating raised letters, such as are commonly found on baseball caps and sports gear. A thin layer of foam is placed onto the face fabric and the design (an initial, a logo…) is stitched, rather embroidered, over it. Once this is complete, any excess foam is snipped away close to the stitching lines and lifted off, leaving a raised embroidered design. This method is a mechanical translation and a crude cross between Italian quilting, trapunto and stumpwork embroideries.
